Hi all, another Swansea student looking for some advice re a visualisation. I’ve attached an image below and any insight on the appropriateness would be appreciated.
Visual Design Type: Sankey diagram
Name of Tool: Tableau
Country: World broken down to continents
Year: All years of the dataset
: * colour : colour mapped different continents and greyscale used for primary fuel categories
: * size : size of the curve relates to the capacity of a specific fuel type
There is a greater concentration of the capacity of the fuel in Asia and North America compared to South America or Africa
Aggregating the data to continents and removing superfluous information
It is possible to extract meaning from the visualisation?
I’m concerned about the number of curves in the graphic and wanted to know whether I should try to further aggregate the fuel types?
Would a different type of visualisation be more appropriate for what I’m trying to convey?
I haven’t thought too much about the colours for the continents, and wanted to know whether these are acceptable or what I should be looking for when categorising things by colour.
