Create Vertical Sankey Charts with Ease

November 9, 2023
Highcharts v11.2.0 offers new options for the Sankey chart series including vertical alignment and color modes.

Highcharts is an industry-leading JavaScript charting library, used by tens of thousands of developers and over 80% of the world's 100 largest companies. Highcharts Core (formerly Highcharts JS) is an SVG-based, multi-platform charting library that has been actively developed since 2009.

Highcharts v11.2.0 adds new options for the presentation of Sankey chart types. The nodeAlignment option lets you specify which side of the chart nodes should align to, facilitating a vertical layout. The linkColorMode option determines the color mode for Sankey links, including matching the "from" node, the "to" node, or a gradient between the two.

Sankey charts are a type of flow diagram suited to visualizing complex data that changes over time. With the added Sankey chart display options, Highcharts now offers more impactful ways to visualize your data.
