How to use this template

Sankey diagram

A template for creating Sankey diagrams and alluvial diagrams. Ideal for displaying energy flows or the changes in seats between parties from before to after an election.

Data requirements

The template works with two types of data format:

  1. Flows are already in the data, and each row has a source name, target name and flow value (plus optional step from and step to columns for multistep alluvial diagrams).

  2. Flows are not already in the data. In this model, each row is a entity (e.g. a seat in an election), with a source name and target name (e.g. representing the ruling party before and after the election). With this kind of data the flows are computed automatically by adding up source–target pairs (taking into account step from and step to values).

FAQ

How can I specify the ordering of the results? They're shown in a different order from my raw data In the settings panel, set "Iter" to 0.

Tips

  • If specifying flow values directly, the column used for Value of link must contain positive numbers or zero
  • Names are compared and values summed using case-insensitive comparisons with all non-alphanumeric characters stripped. For example “Cat“ and “cA ?t“ are considered identical.
  • Hovering over a link will defocus all other links and any node not connected to that link. Hovering over a node will defocus all links that are not directly connected to that node and all nodes not connected via a link to the hovered node. You can fix focus on a node or link and all its connections by clicking on the entity. This is particularly useful for guiding viewers through your stories. Click a focused node or link again to remove the focus or click any other node or link to change focus to that entity.
  • The optional Step from and Step to column selection boxes make it possible to construct multistep alluvial diagrams where links go from Step from to Step to along the horizontal direction. If only Step from is assigned to a column then the value of Step to is assumed to be one greater than that of Step from. Similarly, if only Step to is assigned to a column then the value of Step from is assumed to be one less than that of Step to.

This section documents API usage specific to this template, so for an introduction we suggest you refer to the generic API documentation instead.

Template data

There are two different formats in which you can supply data to this template. Which one will be more convenient for you likely depends on the source of your data, as described below.

Array of objects with arbitrary keys, and a bindings object

This format is most likely useful when you have data from an external source, such as CSV data loaded from d3-dsv. You should supply this attached to the opts.data, which might look like:

    {
        links: [
            { "LinksHeader1": ..., "LinksHeader2": ..., ... },
            { "LinksHeader1": ..., "LinksHeader2": ..., ... },
            { "LinksHeader1": ..., "LinksHeader2": ..., ... },
            ...
        ]
    }

... but with the keys being the column headers from your source data instead. To tell the API how these values from each column should be associated with the keys that the template is expecting, you must also supply an object attached to opts.bindings. (The meanings of the keys in the bindings object are documented below.) The minimal bindings you can supply for this template are as shown in this example:

{
    template: "@flourish/sankey",
    version: "7",
    bindings: {
        links: {
            source: "LinksHeader1",
            target: "LinksHeader2"
        }
    },
    data: {
        links: [
            { "LinksHeader1": ..., "LinksHeader2": ..., ... },
            { "LinksHeader1": ..., "LinksHeader2": ..., ... },
            { "LinksHeader1": ..., "LinksHeader2": ..., ... },
            ...
        ]
    }
}

All possible bindings that you can supply are shown in this example:

{
    template: "@flourish/sankey",
    version: "7",
    bindings: {
        links: {
            source: "LinksHeader1",
            target: "LinksHeader2",
            value: "LinksHeader3",
            step_from: "LinksHeader4",
            step_to: "LinksHeader5",
            filter: "LinksHeader6"
        }
    },
    data: {
        links: [
            { "LinksHeader1": ..., "LinksHeader2": ..., ... },
            { "LinksHeader1": ..., "LinksHeader2": ..., ... },
            { "LinksHeader1": ..., "LinksHeader2": ..., ... },
            ...
        ]
    }
}

(As before, the keys containing "Header" would be replaced by column names from your data source.)

Array of objects with template-defined keys

There is an alternative format you can use, which is likely to be easier to use if your data is not from a spreadsheet source. With this alternative format you supply your data to the template as an array of objects, attached to opts.data, where the keys must be those used by the template, as documented below. In this case there is no need to supply a bindings object, since the key names are already those expected by the template. The required properties in the data object are as follows (scroll down for a description of what each property is):

{
template: "@flourish/sankey",
version: "7",
data: {
    links: [
        {
            source: ...,
            target: ...
        },
        ...
    ]
},
...
}

And the full list of all possible properties is as follows:

{
template: "@flourish/sankey",
version: "7",
data: {
    links: [
        {
            source: ...,
            target: ...,
            value: ...,
            step_from: ...,
            step_to: ...,
            filter: ...
        },
        ...
    ]
},
...
}

Meanings of the template data keys:

  • links.source: source
  • links.target: target
  • links.value: A numerical value used to set the thickness of the links.
  • links.step_from: An integer value used to indicate where a link starts from (used only in Alluvial mode).
  • links.step_to: An integer value used to indicate where a link goes to (used only in Alluvial mode).
