GrandPerspective is a small utility application for macOS that graphically shows the disk usage within a file system.It can help you to manage your disk, as you can easily spot which files and folders take up the most space.It uses a so called tree map for visualisation. Each file is shown as a rectangle with an area proportional to the file's size.Files in the same folder appear together, but their placement is otherwise arbitrary.

GrandPerspective is certainly not the first of its kind. Tree maps have been around for a while, and their application to file systems is not novel either. A few other disk usage visualisation tools that employ tree maps are:
So, why GrandPerspective?Well, as you may have guessed it's a fun little coding project and I needed to pick something to code on my new Mac Mini.Having said that, it does have a few things going for it.Firstly, GrandPerspective is developed specifically for macOS, which narrows the immediate competition down to Disk Inventory X, as far as I'm aware.Secondly, GrandPerspective has its own way of visualising directory trees.The layout algorithm that is used is simple and effective, but novel to the best of my knowledge.Also, the file rectangles are drawn to be as clear and unobtrusive as possible. Whether you like it or not is a matter of taste, but you've got a choice.Thirdly, GrandPerspective will intentionally be kept as basic as possible.It should do one thing only, and do it well. That means it is a lean and mean application.GrandPerspective's memory requirements and the size it occupies on disk are pretty minimal.For those concerned about disk space, the latter must count for something, right?Finally, it has a cute logo that will enhance anyone's Dock. ;-)
