I was very delighted to see a blog post on visual reports on Arup’s fieldofactivity.com blog with an embedded video that has Sankey diagrams.
Arup Australasia’s Digital Innovation Team is working on interactive reporting technologies. They say that “… not everyone reads technical reports, so this is the beginning of what’s next – visual reports.”
Check out the video, it is interesting, and watch out for the Sankey diagram seconds 0:15 to 0:21
What we see is a Sankey diagram unfolding in an animated sequence. One step further would be animated Sankey diagrams, like the research project I posted about that came up with a Java/Quicktime animation on energy flows, and this Sankey animatedGIF on CO2 and energy from 1990 to 2015.
Any other animated Sankey diagrams out there…?
