Map Charts and Heatmaps are a great innovation within the LightningChart® JavaScript library as these features improve the data visualization of a large number of data points. Particularly, the map charts support customizable functions as dynamic color-coding values according to data.

As mentioned, the UI in these new chart types improves with characteristics such as auto-cursor to display data on mouse hovering and different map views by regions (worldwide, USA, North America, South America, Canada, etc.).

Is the Map Charts Performance Compromised?

Not at all! Map charts continue having an outstanding performance with high Frames-Per-Second rates. A total smooth real-time visualization experience!
