SciChart® the market leader in Fast WPF Charts, WPF 3D Charts, and iOS Chart & Android Chart Components
I have a problem with 2D heatmap performace due to lots of data. I tried some tips to increase performance (rendering priority, resampling etc.) but it is insufficient. I read a scichart forum about 2D heatmap performance and I found answer about possible performance improvement in future (https://www.scichart.com/questions/question/heatmap-2d-performance). I would like to ask you if there is any performance improvement in newer scichart version. Actually I’m working with version 220.127.116.1187.
Thanks for your answer.
Update: SciChart WPF v5 and above has vastly improved heatmap performance

New Heatmap Controls
The FastHeatmapRenderableSeries has been made obsolete, and replaced with two new controls!
The FastUniformHeatmapRenderableSeries, and the FastNonUniformHeatmapRenderableSeries.
These updated heatmap controls provide additional performance and
- PaletteProvider supported in Heatmap (override cell color)
- Point Metadata supported in Heatmap (tag cell data)
- Support for massive heatmaps: 10k * 10k!
- Performance: New Heatmap series up to 10x faster when DirectX Enabled.
A re-work of Heatmap is on our task board for v4.1 and v4.2. The problem with heatmap peformance comes from the way the data is structured before drawing. It was never really optimal for using the GPU.
With SciChart 3D we’ve learned how to efficiently draw really large surfaces using the graphics card, so an investigation of porting this technology to 2D heatmaps is pending.
