About this accelerator

Version: Cognos Analytics 11.1.6 to Current

Sankey visualizations can show the energy accounts, material flow accounts on a regional or national level, and cost breakdowns. Sankey visualizations emphasize the major transfers or flows within a system. They help locate the most important contributions to a flow. They often show conserved quantities within defined system boundaries.

It is a code sample with specific requirements and does not include all the features/interactivity/properties of an out-of-the-box Cognos visualization. It is intended to provide a baseline for developers to extend their visualizations. If you are not an advanced visualization developer, Cognos Analytics already delivers a full set of fully-featured and powerful visualizations that are ready to use.
