I'm looking to create a heatmap using OpenLayers, which is possible using the
ol.layer.Heatmap class. However, I want to limit the visualisation of the heatmap effect to span just the underlying vector polygons (so not a true heatmap).
So in the end the heatmap should only visible as overlay on existing vector features. The reason I want to do this is that I want to give the polygons a weighted gradient, which depends on the weight of the individual vertices of the polygon. There will only be one polygon at a time (in a pop-up), so the heatmap effect will be isolated automatically to just one polygon, it just needs to be clipped. Does anyone know if this can be realized in OpenLayers?
