Sankey Diagram Mod for Spotfire® 1.0.0 (Spotfire 11.3+)

1 Screenshot


Depict a flow from one set of values to another.



The Sankey Diagram Mod displays a flow from one set of values to another, in which the width of the arrow is shown proportionally to the flow quantity.

Sankey diagrams (also called alluvial diagrams) are typically used to visualize energy or material or cost transfers between processes. They put a visual emphasis on the major transfers or flows within a system and are helpful in locating dominant contributions to an overall flow.
