WebGL Heatmap

webgl-heatmap.js is a JavaScript library for high performance heatmap display.

Demo

Live Demo at codeflow.org

How to use it

Instantiate a new heatmap, errors can be one of:

  • Webgl is not supported
  • No floating point texture support
  • Floating point render target not supported
  • Shader Compile Error: ...
  • Shader Link Error: ...
try{
    var heatmap = createWebGLHeatmap({canvas: yourCanvas});
}
catch(error){
    // handle the error
}

Add a data point.

  • x and y relative to the canvas in pixels
  • size in pixels (radius)
  • intensity between 0 and 1
heatmap.addPoint(x, y, size, intensity);

Draw queued data points:

heatmap.update()

Display the heatmap

heatmap.display()

Multiply all values in the heatmap by a number (useful for decay)

heatmap.multiply(0.995)

Clamp all values in the heatmap to between two values:

heatmap.clamp(0.0, 1.0)

Blur all values a little:

heatmap.blur()
