recursive method for heatmap calculation from given 2D points.
Calculating a heat map is a complex task, because since the user selects a more detailed resolution, the runtime of the calculation increases accordingly. The main difficulty in the calculation is in the sum of all the coordinates for the boundaries of each cell in the heat map. To overcome this problem, the code smart_heatmap.py applied recursive solution:
Note: In one of my other projects, there is a method with even faster runtime! see: cumulative-heatmap-calculation
If we encounter during the process a square that does not intersect at all with the coordinates, we will stop its division. Now, we will save all the squares we calculated with intersection count bigger than zero. Now we got a heat map with the required resolution! As can be seen, the runtime of the calculation using the recursive algorithm is significantly lower than the naive algorithm:
The resolution of the heat map can be adjusted using the "depth" variable. This variable determines how many splits to make in each of the first squares. The larger the "depth" variable, the higher the resolution we get. You can see a diagram describing the split into squares, by each depth:
As mentioned, it is important to make sure that a suitable resolution is chosen for the calculation, since different values for the "depth" variable will lead to different results. A simple example based on the file circle.csv illustrates how different values resulted different outputs:
The heat map calculation performed using the HeatMap object. This object receives a Python list consisting of tuples of X and Y coordinates. Also, the desired depth also must be set for the object. Using the data about the coordinates, the HeatMap calculates the initial squares and performs the recursive calculation on them. At the end of the process, the squares that compose the heat map are calculated, as can be seen in the example process figure (based on the file rome_100000.shp that contain 100,000 points coordinates!):
The final squares can be accessed as one of the data of the object: HeatMap(xy_tpl_lst, depth = 5).heatmap. It is also possible to create a plot based on the results of the heat map using the function built into the object, as in the following example:
from smart_heatmap import HeatMap, loadcsv
xy = loadcsv(r'example\circle.csv','x','y')
hm = HeatMap(xy, depth=4)
hm.plot()
In addition, the calculation results can be exported and saved as files in various formats using the save_map function of the object, as can be seen in the implementation.py file. The function allows to save the results in SHP, KML and CSV format. It should be noted that saving the results as layers is automatically set to geographic coordinate system of WGS_1984_DD.
Also, the data that saved to a KML file gets a color corresponding to the count of its intersection. Example for such output you can see here as interactive MYMAPS page. This output based on the Gibraltar.kml example file and the output also available here: Gibraltar_Output.kml. Also, for convenience, the code contains three XY-tuple-list load functions from SHP, KML and CSV files:
The code uses the following libraries in Python:
matplotlib
shapefile
simplekml
pandas
numpy
An application of the code is attached to this page under the name:
the examples outputs are also attached here.
To use this code, you just need to import it as follows:
# import
from smart_heatmap import HeatMap, loadshp
# load data
xy = loadshp(r'examples\feature_class.shp')
# define depth variable
depth = 5
# application
hm = HeatMap(xy, depth)
# plot
hm.plot()
# save data as csv
hm.save_map('filename','csv')
When the variables displayed are:
xy: the given xy coordiantes list.
depth the required depth for the recursion, define the output resolution.
