Heatmap Chart

A heat map chart is a specialized chart that uses colors to represent data values in a table. It is mostly used to plot large and complex data. The chart is visualized like a table with a finite number of rows and columns. Cells within the table are rendered in different colors depending upon the range in which the data value they represent belongs to. An icon legend or a gradient legend, depending on the use case, is rendered at the bottom of the chart. This chart can be used to plot data like employee attendance, performance ratings, election results, and so on.


The caption (also called the chart title) is the heading of your chart. You can add custom text for the caption, as well as configure its font properties and cosmetics. Learn more about it
