Creating TreeMap Chart in Google Data Studio

Creating TreeMap Chart in Google Data Studio

You want to present a hierarchy in a Google Data Studio dashboard but you don't know how to do it.

In this post, you'll learn what is a TreeMap chart, how to create one on your Google Data Studio dashboard.

In a treemap, the data is represented as "branches" (also called "nodes"). The number of sub-branches and the number of parent-branch relationships might vary widely amongst branches (except for the root, which has no parents).

As the numbers in your data change, so does the size and color of each branch. In the graph, branch sizes and colors are ranked according to their relative importance.

Imagine that our data is such in this table:

So we can see how much pretty birdseed we have on the shelf compared to parrot perch and so others.
