The plugin provides different options to control the heatmap layer appearance.
- Edit a map
- Click on the menu “Heatmap layer settings”.
- Find below the different heatmap layer options.
1. Heatmap dissipating
Specify whether heatmaps dissipate on zoom. When dissipating is “No” the radius of influence increases with zoom level to ensure that the color intensity is preserved at any given geographic location.
2. Heatmap point weight
Set how much each individual point contributes to the intensity of your heatmap. By default, each point has an implicit weight of 1. Increasing the weight to 3 will have the same effect as placing three points in the same location.
3. Heatmap maximum intensity
Set the maximum intensity of the heatmap. By default, heatmap colors are dynamically scaled according to the greatest concentration of points at any particular pixel on the map. This property allows you to specify a fixed maximum. Setting the maximum intensity can be helpful when your dataset contains a few outliers with an unusually high intensity.
4. Heatmap point radius
Set the radius of influence for each point in pixels.
5. Heatmap opacity
Set the global opacity of the heatmap layer, between 0 and 1.
6. Heatmap color gradient
Choose the color gradient to use for the heatmap layer. By default, the map will use the Google Maps color gradient. When selecting the option “Custom color gradient”, you’ll need to generate your color gradient!
