The idea of the algorithm is to layout the rectangles along the required direction in the available display area as long as the highest width/height ratio of any rectangle in the current row keeps improving. Once the highest aspect ratio among the rectangles has reached a minimum, and adding another rectangle to the current row would increase the worst aspect ratio, the current row is fixed and a new row is created.
The following image demonstrates the tree map layout calculated using this algorithm.
