Heatmap In DSS Client


This article will show you how to use Heatmap in DSS Client

Heatmap displays the distribution of moving objects in colors of different shades. It reflects the range of activity regions by different colors, for example, red means the activity is relatively high and blue means the activity is relatively low

Note: The device sends heat map data to the platform on a real-time basis. You can search uploaded heat map data starting from the time the device was added to the server
