A treemap interactive chart web component for visualizing hierarchical data

Version published




NPM package Build Size NPM Downloads

An interactive treemap chart for visualizing proportions in hierarchical data, where nodes of a tree are represented as nested fully-packed rectangular tiles.

Supports zooming interactions via mouse-wheel events or by clicking on a node, which focuses the viewport on the associated sub-tree. The chart also responds to data changes by animating the dimensions of each of the nodes into their new positions.

For improved performance, nodes with area (width*height) smaller than a given threshold (minBlockArea) are excluded from the DOM, allowing for representation of large data sets while maintaining a smooth interaction. See here for an example of a randomly generated large data structure.

See also the Circle Pack, Icicle and Sunburst charts.

Quick start

import Treemap from 'treemap-chart';

or using a script tag

<script src="//"></script>


const myChart = Treemap();

API reference

data([object])Getter/setter for chart data (see below for syntax details).
width([number])Getter/setter for the chart width in px.<window width>
height([number])Getter/setter for the chart height in px.<window height>
children([string or fn])Getter/setter for a data node's children accessor, used to establish the hierarchical relationship between nodes. Supports either a string indicating the object's property name, or a function(node) which should return an array of nodes.children
label([string or fn])Getter/setter for a node object label accessor, used to display labels on the blocks and their
size([string or fn])Getter/setter for a node object size accessor, used to compute the areas of the blocks.value
padding([number])Getter/setter for the amount of padding between adjacent blocks, in px.2.5
color([string or fn])Getter/setter for a node object color accessor, used to color the blocks.grey
nodeClassName([string or fn])Getter/setter for a node object classname accessor. Determines the CSS class(es) to apply to each block node.
minBlockArea([number])Getter/setter for the minimum area of a block (in square px) required for it to be rendered in the DOM.100
excludeRoot([boolean])Getter/setter for whether to exclude the root node from the representation.false
sort([fn])Getter/setter for the compare method used to sort sibling blocks. A value of null (default) maintains the existing order found in the input data structure. This method is equivalent to d3-hierarchy's sort, it receives two arguments representing two sibling nodes and expects a numeric return value (-1, 0 or 1) indicating the order. Each element is an instance of d3-hierarchy node and has several useful properties to specify order: data (the corresponding data object), value (summed value of node and all its descendants) and depth (layer degree). For example, to order blocks by size, use: (a, b) => b.value - a.value.<existing order>
showLabels([boolean])Getter/setter for whether to show labels in the nodes. Regardless of this setting, labels too large to fit within a block's width are automatically hidden.true
showTooltip([fn])Getter/setter to specify a node object tooltip's visibility. If this function returns false for a particular node, that node's tooltip will not display at all. If unspecified, all nodes' tooltips will display.() => true
tooltipTitle([fn])Getter/setter for a node object tooltip title. The function should return a string to be displayed in bold in the first line of the tooltip. If unspecified, the full hierarchical name will be displayed.
tooltipContent([fn])Getter/setter for a node object tooltip content. Use this to specify extra content in each of the block's tooltips in addition to the title set in tooltipTitle.
zoomToNode([node])Programmatically zoom the chart to a particular node.
zoomBy([number])Programmatically zoom the chart by a specific amount. 1 is unity, above one indicates a zoom-in and below a zoom-out.
zoomReset()Programmatically reset the zoom to the global view.
onHover([fn])Callback function for mouse hover events. Includes the data node object (or null if hovering on background) as single argument.
onClick([fn])Callback function for click events. Includes the data node object (or null if clicking on the background) as single argument. A falsy value (default) automatically zooms on clicked nodes, equivalent to myChart.onClick(myChart.zoomToNode).
transitionDuration([number])Getter/setter for the animation duration of transitions between states (opening, zoom in/out) in milliseconds. Enter 0 to disable animations.800
