I'm working on a calendar display for my application. I'm using the Cal-Heatmap library, however I've modified the legend.
With this calendar library in particular, the square representing the lowest values in the legend always says
less than <a number> when the user displays the title by hovering, while the square representing the highest values displays
greater than <a number>. The libraries example is below.
Standard lowest value:
Standard highest value:
In the version I've built for my application, there is a zero bin, then it ranges the first colored bin from 1 -
<a number> (see below)
My zero bin:
My lowest values:
My highest values:
The data I have is dynamic and since I've put the zero bin in, I've been having some issues getting the correct hover text to display. My concern however, is that the user won't know that the white values in the calendar mean the value is zero.
Do I need a zero bin to be displayed to users in the legend or would they assume that anything that isn't (in this case) green has zero for a value?
