A "tree map" is a visual representation where each node can have zero or more children (or sublocations), and one parent. Each node is displayed as a rectangle, sized and colored according to values that you assign.
Once you have all the locations of your facility created and well configured, it's time to analyze what is your consumption compared to other locations that are in the same sublevel or against the total.
Thus we can see quickly what locations are consuming more or have a higher ratio of consumption. In the picture below you can see how the location that is painted as red, has a higher ratio of consumption by surface, but is not the one who consumes the most or is bigger regarding the surface, since the dimension of the rectangle is smaller than for other locations.
- Energy sources: energy source we want to analyze: electricity, gas, water, etc
- Dates: date range we want to analyze
- Reference device: reference meter configured in all locations to analyze. The analysis will be done by the main device, HVAC, lighting, etc. So, we should have properly configured the reference meter for all the locations.
- Ratios: select as many ratios as we need to make the analysis
- Area dimension: we can do the analysis showing as dimension reference the Surface or the Consumption of the location.
- Levels displayed: number of sublevels displayed. By default, it's shown the maximum number of sublevels configured in the tree. For more information about how to create the hierarchy of locations visit the following support article.
- Calculate values for hierarchy sublevels: option to do the analysis for the intermediate sublevels. By default won't be calculated and they will appear in grey.
- Zoom out: we can show the map situating us on a sublevel. To come back to a higher level, click on "Zoom Out" button
