Do you know what a sunburst is? And how to create one in Qlik Sense?
There are currently two extensions to fulfill your wishes.
- “Zoomable Sunburst with D3” by brianwmunz
- “D3 Sequences Sunburst Extension For QlikSense” by Niceqlik
- Demand two dimensions and one measure
- Show you a colored sunburst
The 'Zoomable' allows to select a dimension but the dimension isn’t highlighting. The 'D3 Sequences' repairs this problem and gives you an overview when you hover a dimension. It doesn’t work anytime but it’s an excellent idea! I like also the adapted caption in the upper-left corner. The consideration is that you cannot select via the chart.
Unfortunately, I’ve also smalls critical:
- Texts exceed out of cells
- No color options
I also feel that the dimensions are inversed. Instinctively, I wish the country in center and the city after. When I add it in this order, I obtain the invers, so the city in center and country after.
