Charting type -- the rectangles in like a surface map

Anyone know what this type of charting is called? Where it's a rectangle filled with various rectangles, grouped into areas grouped by significance, and spaced according to what the "volume" type axis is?

I lost some links for visualization, but you might want to check out Tufte's works.

SequoiaView calls it "squarified treemaps" or "cushion treemaps":
