    Is tableau able to map relationships between data points? (e.g. Bob wires $10,000 to Sue)

      Good afternoon all,

       

      I'm looking for advice on the best way to approach a "follow the money" flow diagram using Tableau.

       

      Basically I have a set of Senders and Receivers of money and I want to know if I can map the relationships between them like:

       

      Sender    Receiver   Amount

      Bob          Sue       $100

      Sue          Bill         $300

      ...

      Bill           Bob       $500

       

      Ideally I'd like the Entities to be dots and the Amounts to be arrows between the dots with the width of the arrows as the SUM(Amount).

       

      What do you guys think?

       

      Thank you kindly,

       

      Evan
