Sankey Flow Show

Attractive Sankey diagrams

Sankey FlowShow is the first webapp to freely draw Sankey diagrams. Loops, branches, customizable soft curves, graphical effects (such as shadows) and many other design options add a captivating quality to your Sankey diagrams. A huge amount of details such as the extensive icon and shape library, freely adjustable distances from connection lines to items, automatic indicators and many more make your work a pleasure.

Examples
Historic Steam Engine efficiency diagram
As a tribute to Captain Sankey, this diagram was recreated with Sankey Flow Show from his original figure out of the year 1898. The original figure compares an actual steam plant with an idealized steam plant. The diagram shows just the actual steam plant where energy losses originate mainly from radiation and friction.
[Wikipedia]: "Sankey diagrams are named after Irish Captain Matthew Henry Phineas Riall Sankey, who used this type of diagram in 1898 in a classic figure showing the energy efficiency of a steam engine. While the first charts in black and white were merely used to display one type of flow (e.g. steam), using colors for different types of flows has added more degrees of freedom to Sankey diagrams."
R141b Production process flow diagram
R141b is mainly used as a refrigerant. Other names are "1-Dichloro-1-fluoroethane" and "HCFC-141b".
This diagram provides a cradle-to-gate view on the production of R141b. It was created by Dr. Thorsten Volz in the year 1997 for the purpose of Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) and as a verification sample for the development of the LCA software GaBi®, one of the first software tools with Sankey diagram capabilities.
Energy Efficiency, Lighting efficiency diagram
The actually used light of a typical lighting system is just a small part of the consumed electric energy. The most energy is wasted as heat loss.
This diagram follows the convention to show losses with arrows bounded towards the bottom.
Brewery processes process flow diagram
Technical and chemical processes can be visualized transparently using Sankey diagrams. The example shows the process flow in a brewery.
Production-integrated environmental protection energy flow diagram
The diagram shows the energy flow in a metalworking operation. It was created within the framework of production-integrated environmental protection.
Household Energy Costs drill down tree
The energy consumers in a typical household are heating and cooling, water heating, lighting, refrigerator, clothes washer, dish washer, electronics and some others.
Drill down trees consist of one or more aggregation levels. The diagram shows the aggregated costs of all electric devices as well as the details on the tree's sub level.
Signup Workflow workflow diagram
Workflow diagram for the sign up process of a web app. The user can choose between native sign in and single sign in via a AUTH2 provider. The native sign in requires the verification of the email address.
The arrow widths show the expected incidences. Decisions are shown with colors: YES = green, NO = red.

Created with Sankey Flow Show Wizards
Synthesis, In-Out in-out diagram
The chemical synthesis sample visualizes input and output materials in relation to each other. It was generated with the Sankey Flow Show wizard "Simple In-Out".
The "Simple In-Out" wizard helps to create items with an arbitrary number of inputs and outputs. The wizard dialog provides easy and fast methods to add inputs and outputs and related amounts. The basic layout and formatting is done automatically and reduces the later manual fine tuning to a minimum.
Energy Producers vs. Consumers producer consumer diagram
The sample energy production and consumption items are linked to a single connection. It was generated with the Sankey Flow Show wizard "Producer vs. Consumer". The "Producer vs. Consumer" wizard helps to create a single connection with an arbitrary number of producers and consumers. The wizard dialog provides easy and fast methods to add producers and consumers and related amounts. The basic layout and formatting is done automatically and reduces the later manual fine tuning to a minimum.The sample energy production and consumption items are linked to a single connection.

Company Comparision comparison diagram
The company comparison diagram shows company revenues and a benchmark face-to-face. It was generated with the Sankey Flow Show wizard "Comparison".
The "Comparison" wizard helps to create a comparison of two items with an arbitrary number of categories. The wizard dialog provides easy and fast methods to add categories and related amounts. The basic layout and formatting is done automatically and reduces the later manual fine tuning to a minimum.
BOM Tree drill down tree
The Sample bill of material shows the levels "product", "assembly", "sub assembly" and "part". It was generated with the Sankey Flow Show wizard "Drill Down Tree".
The "Drill Down Tree" wizard helps to create sankey diagrams with tree structures containing an arbitrary number of levels and of items on each level. The wizard dialog provides easy and fast methods to add levels, items and related amounts. The basic layout and formatting is done automatically and reduces the later manual fine tuning to a minimum.
Generic Meshed Columns meshed columns diagram
The generic sankey diagram shows three meshed columns. It was generated with the Sankey Flow Show wizard "Meshed Columns".
The "Meshed Columns" wizard helps to create items in columns. The items in a column are meshed with the items in the next column in a matrix manner. The wizard dialog provides easy and fast methods to add columns, items and related amounts. The basic layout and formatting is done automatically and reduces the later manual fine tuning to a minimum.
