As we announced a few days ago, Flexicious 3.1 includes 2 brand new additions to our Dashboard Framework: The Flex Treemap and The Flex Calendar/Scheduler components.  If you are an existing Dashboard customer, with a valid subscription, you get both these components at no additional cost! 

The Treemap is basically an extended Chart, so the API for it is quite similar to the rest of the charting components.  For those of you who are unfamiliar with what a Treemap is, here is a description from Wikipedia: << "Treemaps display hierarchical (tree-structured) data as a set of nested rectangles. Each branch of the tree is given a rectangle, which is then tiled with smaller rectangles representing sub-branches. A leaf node's rectangle has an area proportional to a specified dimension on the data. Often the leaf nodes are colored to show a separate dimension of the data." >>

Below is what the Flexicious 3.1 Treemap looks like. As you can quickly guess, it gives you the population (area) and the relative wealth (color darkness). This is real data, and paints quite an interesting picture of how many households exist and their relative wealth. 

Here is what this looks like if you drill down on all those rich folks in NJ:

We are open to feedback, since this is the initial release of the component, we have additional features planned.  We are keen to hear your feedback to further enhance the component to meet your requirements and save you time!
