I work with a water resource manager - in order to get a better understanding of where water comes from, they want me to build a map that would show, the flow of water, not literally, but abstractly from the state down to water agencies and then to customers. Basically they want points where the water agencies are and then arrows to where those water agencies sell water. Eventually they want to build on top of that framework and add where imported water goes, etc - BUT NOT THE ACTUAL PATHS, THEY JUST WANT TO SEE WHERE WATER IS MOVED. Is schematics the right tool for this?
Please help, I'm a novice but I want to produce a product that is beneficial for them.
