Sankey Diagram

Sankey diagrams show the unidirectional flows of values from the ultimate sources to the ultimate targets, with emphasis on visualization of the flow intensity. For example, a Sankey diagram can show the movement of goods at each stage of a supply chain, such as production, transportation, and consumption. This makes it useful for highlighting flow trends and resource optimization.

Sankey Diagrams have the following sections:

  • Metrics
  • Attribute (From)
  • Attribute (To)
  • Configuration

You can also display the values as a percentage of the total sum. To do so, check the Show in % checkbox in the Metric section.

For information about common characteristics and settings of all visualizations, see the Visualization Types section.
