I want to suggest symbology that would create dynamic, on-the-fly hexagonal binning in the same way that users can easily transform point data into heat maps in ArcGIS Online. The importance of anonymization of data has increased due to COVID-19 and this tool to symbolize data would provide value by increasing the options to anonymize that sensitive data and provide value for the public through more meaningful visualizations. 

 

This is boring:

This is neat!

This would be incredibly useful. The hex binning provides an excellent, modern visual but is limited because it cannot be dynamically refreshed as data updates.
