Vizlib Heatmap

Vizlib Heatmap is a highly customisable, supported and easy-to-use extension for Qlik Sense which provides features such as Custom color palettes, enhanced toolips, smart legend positioning, completely configurable reference lines, rich formatting, full interactivity control and much more.

The Vizlib Heatmap extension for Qlik Sense is a graphical representation of your data, where the individual values contained in a matrix are highlighted as colors based on your measure, filling the gap of something that is missing in the native Qlik Sense Chart Library.
