Navigating in a treemap hierarchy

You can navigate downwards as well as upwards in the treemap hierarchy.

Navigating downwards in the treemap hierarchy makes it possible to view the details of a level in a branch. The branch level in question fills the entire visualization, and other branches are no longer visible. After viewing the details, you can navigate upwards again.
