How to build a heat map in Excel 2013.

Last Modified: 2015-03-02
I am trying to build a heat map in Excel 2013 based on the United States.  I see other postings regarding this on EE, but they are rather old.  I have two columns, one is the state abbreviation and the other is a count.  I would like to use this information for a heat map.  Attached is an example of what I would like to see.

I have done this in Microsoft MapPoint in the past, but think this would work better for me in Excel.  I am also looking to use SharePoint Excel Services, so any third party control would have to work in this environment.

Any suggestions would be appreciated, especially free ones!
