About Heat Map Plots
The Heat Map visualization is a graphical representation of data collected from a Heat Map question. The coordinates respondents selected are overlaid across the graphic as colored areas, with the color indicating the frequency of respondents’ selections. The redder the area, the more respondents chose that coordinate.
For general settings, see the Visualizations Overview support page. Read on for settings specific to the Heat Map Plot.
There are five unique customization options for Heat Map visualizations:
- Radius: Determine the number of pixels a selected coordinate should color and affect.
- Blur: Determine the number of pixels used to transition from one color to another.
- Block Mode: Force data into a grid (note that while in this mode, Radius changes the size of the grid and Blur has no effect).
- Show Regions: If you have assigned regions to your Heat Map question, display the regions over the heat map.
- Show Region Labels: You must turn on Show Regions first. This gives you the option of showing the name of each region over it.
The following are the visualization types available if you have added regions to your Heat Map questions:
When it comes to visualizing the data, the unique regions of a heat map question act the same as any other multiple choice option.
