This is a toolkit for creating heatmaps. Heatmaps are awesome. I use them for a few things, and now you can, too.
There are quite a few things you can do here and they don't all have
the high level documentation they deserve currently. You can start by
looking at the example to get a feel for what you can do.
Basically, feed in a bunch of
x,y type data and get back a heatmap.
Here's an example from a real-live report:
Colors are always the hardest part, so I attempted to make it easy by providing three things:
Predefined Color Schemes
Drawing Color Schemes
schemes subpackage also has a tool for generating a color scheme
from an image. Given an image that looks like this:
You can use
schemes.FromImage("/path/to/file") to load it and use it
directly. Colors near the bottom are for sparsely populated areas and
colors near the top are for areas that are densely populated.
Computing Color Schemes
You can also compute a color scheme from spec using
This lets you specify starting and ending colors across multiple
segments. Fun away!
