Process to display additional properties within a treemap by use of a "fish-eye" 3D display.
Today a product can utilize a graphical technique called a treemap to visualize an entire tree's contents and their properties. For example, the picture below from Fidelity (http://personal.fidelity.com/research/stocks/content/mapofmarket_fr.shtml) displays the stock market. The tree levels are sector (Technology), sub-sector (software), down to leaf nodes (a specific company). Size of an item is based on relative market capitalization, color by stock price movement.

To date all uses of the treemap have been limited to a 2D display of the data. While the treemap has the ability to display quite a few data properties, it is self-limiting by sticking to a 2D display and cannot display as much data as it could. When attempting to use a treemap to visualize large complex systems this is a very significant limitation.
This disclosure describes the ability to extend the treemap's visual technique from a flat 2D view to a 3D view via a fish-eye lens. By providing a 3D view of the...
