Tree map and Geospatial map

The term mashup started in the music world but  adopted rapidly in the world of web that means an application that combines data from different sources into a whole new application

Geographic data is one of the most common types of data available. Dealing with geographic data without a map like going into the mountain without, well, a map
Geospatial analysis help in identifying "hot spots" where disease or problems are occurring.
Please refer the below article how dominos is leveraging geospatial analytics to know their customer and stores performance.

Treemapping is a method for displaying hierarchical data by using nested rectangle
Treemap display hierarchical(tree-structured) data as a set of nested rectangles. Each branch of the tree is given a rectangle, which is then tiled with smaller rectangle representing sub branches.
Common use case we are seeing these days in analyzing disk space. There is utility called treesize being used in monitoring disk space on servers

Here is very interesting software developed by MIT student which is based on the treemap.
