Sankey diagrams show the flows of values from one category to another. 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 trends and resource optimization.
Sankey Diagrams have the following sections:
- Attribute (From)
- Attribute (To)
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.
This diagram cannot show a circular movement. If 2 nodes are both a source and a target to each other, for example representing flights from airport A to airport B and then back to A, the diagram will not be properly generated. It is therefore necessary that your data sources contain only values relevant to the flow in one direction.
