Heatmap.js – Dynamic Heatmaps for the Web

Heatmap.js – Dynamic Heatmaps for the Web
https://www.patrick-wied.at/static/heatmapjs/

heatmap.js is a lightweight, easy to use JavaScript library to help you visualize your three dimensional data! Use it to add new value to your project, build a business based on it, study and visualize user behavior, or why not build something completely crazy/awesome? Whether you want to have an aggregated overview of your users behavior, or look at thousands of events distributed on a map… Why heatmap.js? Because it is the most advanced heat map visualization library on the web. It has a light footprint (~3kB gzip) and with the new 2.0 release heatmap.js just got: 1) faster, with a new rendering module; 2) stronger, to handle even more datapoints (40k+); 3) easier to use so you can get up to speed quickly; and 4) easier to extend for custom functionality than ever before. heatmap.js’ API is all documented – also prioritized: *hot docs* – so you can start developing right away! As heatmap.js is more or less actively developed and maintained on github, people have contributed some really useful plugins (especially for GIS developers. )Throughout the last few years heatmap.js evolved to the next level.
