Treemap Charts are one of the many new Charts available only in Excel 2016.

They are very visual as it can easily show you patterns, like based on your summary of sales grouped by month.

The tree branches are represented by rectangles, wherein each rectangle’s size would denote how big the value (in this case, Sales) would be.

The treemap chart would  show each category in each unique color to make it easy to differentiate between each other.

In this example I show you how easy it is to insert a Treemap Chart using Excel 2016.
