Similar question. I also have heterogeneous objects to display, but I want to render them with differing sizes.
SparseGrid does not support color maps directly. But it's easy enough to do it. Choose or create a SimplePortrayal to display your object. Let's say it's OvalPortrayal2D. Then you can say:On Aug 2, 2012, at 5:19 AM, Luís de Sousa wrote:

final SimpleColorMap map = new SimpleColorMap( ....... ); // set it up like you'd like
OvalPortrayal2D oval = new OvalPortrayal2D()
public void draw(Object object, Graphics2D graphics, DrawInfo2D info)
MyObjectClass obj = (MyObjectClass) object;
double val = obj.getMyAttribute();
paint = new Color(map.getColor(val));
super.draw(object, graphics, info);
Then just use 'oval' as your portrayal.
