Heat Maps using Excel
- RGB (Red, Green, Blue) values set in your Excel file
- Data Scale – a data value is defined in your Excel file plus two colors representing the minimum and maximum values of your scale. vMaps Heatmap then calculates the color for you for each part of the map, based on your data.
Using the Heatmap feature, it’s possible to set the color of more than 200 shapes in the World map in around 60 seconds, a task that previously took hours to complete. The Heatmap feature also supports data import into the text labels on your slide.
