DOM Heatmap is one of the most powerful tools in Wallstreet and it doesn't exist (yet) in the world of cryptocurrency.
Previously used exclusively by financial professionals, Heat maps are
industry-proven investment tools that synthesize complex data to help
you make faster and better trading decisions.
Heat maps translate raw, complex financial data into visual maps by presenting live, colorful pictures
that dynamically change in real time.

One indicator that NOBODY in bitcoin has... and this site poised to
very easily manifest is a "Depth of Market Heatmap" If you put a DOM
heatmap streaming BTCUSD market data on the front page... people would
be drawn to this place like bitcoinwisdom v2.0.
The only things needed are:
Highcharts Heatmap Plugin
Access to Orderbook Data
White line is closing price, color spectrum is orderbook density:
this website is really slow to load but it has an animated DOM heatmap:
bump for highcharts heatmap plugin
moar bump for highcharts heatmap plugin
streaming DOM heatmap = double plus publicity for tradewave
Wow, I can't believe I didn't see this thread before. I was studying exactly the same (nanex, highcharts, etc) back in 2015. https://www.bookmap.com is awesome, I haven't seen it.
I have tried highcharts, and it's completely unsuitable given bars are 1-3 sec each, since it brings to 20-30K visible datapoints on screen at once. If we are talking about bars 1-5 min, it's ok, but still can raise some performance issues.
The problem with 1-5 min bars is the moment you capture depth. It can be 0 for 4 min 55 sec and then suddenly become 1000 in the last 5 sec when you make get request. You should either update and draw in realtime (each 1-5 sec) or show some average value. At http://depthvisor.com each bar is 2 sec without sufficient overheads (currently Win only). hope to bring it to web with comparable performance (already have working prototype). Cryptowatch for scalpers with the focus on historical depth
