Using Treemaps to represent medical data [pdf]Paper  abstract   bibtex   
Confronted with the inadequacy of traditional charts, we tested the contribution of Treemaps to the representation of medical data. Treemap charts allow description of large hierarchical collections of quantitative data, on a synthetic way. Treemaps were implemented using PHP5, and were tested in the field of DRG-mining and other medical informations. From now on, this implementation is used in an interactive web-based request tool, and could be used to design interactive piloting tools.
