Visualization of Flow Values

Dear All,

I was wondering if it is possible, or if it will be implemented, to be able to visualize the value of the flows on the Graph section of the Product system. That would be extremely helpful both for an immediate understanding of the process but also for graphic and results-reporting purposes.

Thank you for your help,

Best Regards,

Jacopo Giuntoli

Dear Jacopo, dear all,

That is a good suggestion - maybe not in the graph editor directly (since there, the result is not available yet as it is just created in the graph), but in a result view. There is the sankey diagram of course in the analysis section, but this shows indicator scores rather than inventory product masses.

Would anyone else like this feature?

Many thanks for developing the effort to discuss this, I feel strongly about this and like studying a great deal more on this subject. If feasible, as you gain expertise, would you mind updating having a great deal much more info? It is very beneficial for me.

Dear Andreas,

Sorry for bringing up this old thread. While using the software I too would like to be able to view/visualize the mass flows for the product system either in the sankey diagram or other format. I don't think this feature has been implemented yet? If it has, could you please advice on how to assess it? And if not, I think this would be really useful to be considered for future updates.

Thanks a lot!

Best regards,

Hi Fiona,
yes indeed, this has not been implemented yet. The current Sankey shows LCIA indicators and not masses. It would be two weeks effort maybe on our side; if any of the readers is interested to co-sponsor, let us know please.
We are currently changing slightly the openLCA website structure and are thinking to include also a feature-request there, and this could be one of the first items on this list.
Thanks again, and sorry that I cannot give a better answer (in the sense: yes it's available but hidden..),

Hi Andreas,

Thanks for your reply. Do you mean funding when you are saying "co-sponsor"?

A feature-request section would be great, looking forward to that.
