Silverlight Treemap Control

Microsoft’s Global Product Development – Europe team recently released a Silverlight version of the Treemap visualization for adCenter Analytics.  Below we can see it displaying site traffic by user occupation:

You can read more about it on this blog post, or access it via your adCenter account (go here to sign up).

But, like any good software, this visualization is not tied to one system and can show any form of hierarchical data.  Below we see a Treemap representation of the North American National Hockey League teams:


The component consists of two main parts: the Treemap component itself, which visualises the data and the shell, which configures the control, displays information about the cells and even has a ledger at the bottom for keeping note of the information related to the selected cells.

Click HERE to try the Silverlight NHL Treemap. If you don’t have Silverlight installed, you will see a blue icon with the words “Install Microsoft Silverlight”.  Click the icon to install Silverlight, it only takes a few seconds and doesn’t require Administrator permissions

  2. Tom says:

    We love this control.  Are there any plans to make the source available via CodePlex?  

  3. Greg Duncan says:

    Can we get the source to this? (I mean legally, without cache diving?) This control hosted on codeplex or like place?

    I’d like to blog about it, but want to make sure I can tell people how they can use it in their apps, etc…

    We are delighted by the level of interest in the Treemap.  Thank you for taking the time to play with it and to comment.

    We do plan to release the source onto codeplex in the near future and will post a notice when it is available.
