I was looking at the example given at this link for NonUniformHeatmapDataSeries in SciChart. In this example, the width and height of heatmap is given as h=4 and w=7. As I understand h is for Y axis and w is for X axis and data[,] is for Z axis. However, the counts in actual data filled for these axis are not matching wight h and w.

``````var xRangeMapping = new int[] { 0, 10, 20, 26, 36, 60, 72, 84 };   // 8 points for w
var yRangeMapping = new int[] { 100, 250, 390, 410, 600 };         // 5 points for h
``````

What is the purpose of extra points added at first place (0 and 100)? Are these required to set the starting point for both axis?

Here is the code given at above link:

``````int w = 7, h = 4;
var data = new double[h, w];
double maxValue = double.MinValue;
for (int x = 0; x < w; x++)
for (int y = 0; y < h; y++)
{
data[y, x] = 3.5 * ((h - y) * (w - x));
maxValue = Math.Max(maxValue, data[y,x]);
}
var xRangeMapping = new int[] { 0, 10, 20, 26, 36, 60, 72, 84 };
var yRangeMapping = new int[] { 100, 250, 390, 410, 600 };
var heatmapDataSeries = NonUniformHeatmapDataSeries<int, int, double>(data, i => xRangeMapping[i], i => yRangeMapping[i]);

// Apply the Heatmap DataSeries to a FastNonUniformheatmapRenderableSeries
var heatmapRenderableSeries = new FastUniformHeatmapRenderableSeries()
{
ColorMap = new HeatmapColorPalette()
{
Maximum = maxValue,
Minimum = 0,
GradientStops = // exercise left to the reader
}
};
``````

• Thanks for the explanation. I got the idea.. Need one more clarification here.. Is that starting point (0 in this case) required only at the beginning position? Can I instead add ending point which is incremental to last point.. say 90 (after 84) ?? Will it do the mapping correctly?

Hi Anil,

Thanks for your question.
We use heatmap cells mapping, which defines cells boundaries in chart coordinates. Please see the screenshot attached. The first cell starts at X=0 here and ends at X=10, the second one starts at X=10 and ends at X=20, etc.

Hope this helps.
