Diagrams – Changing Diversity, Intensity and Organization Along Time

I like sankey diagram that shows different associations among different players, through which we can build or record changing organization along time. In this kind of diagram, we can not only see changing character of the organization but also keep tracking the individual orgianl characters.  The limitation of this diagram seems to be that  the linear flow is relatively hard to go back to certain point of process and reorganize it. The different intensity of same factors can change the character, performance in that specific time. 

This is  diagram (from stamen design) showing overlapping wireless network that you might get when you are walking on the street. What if this changing organization of different industries with different intensity along the process indicates that industry with higher bar has more powers that control the process?
