Um :-) ... the term "heatmap" doesn't actually refer to heat:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Heat_map

"a graphical representation of data where the individual values contained
in a matrix <https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Matrix_(mathematics)> are
represented as colors. The term 'heat map' was originally coined and
trademarked <https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trademarked> by software
designer Cormac Kinney <https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cormac_Kinney> in
1991, to describe a 2D display depicting financial market
<https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Financial_market> information,[1]
<https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Heat_map#cite_note-USPTO_Heatmaps-1> though
similar plots such as shading matrices have existed for over a century.[2]

Um, it's not a literal heat map... Just frequency and density of ride
