Venn Diagram of 7 color sets

on Sat, 09/01/2012 - 14:35

This interactive visualization of 7 sets Venn Diagram was created by Santiago Ortiz. It is his own version of the 7-Way Venn which was referenced by Information is Beautiful and pinterest of David MacCandless and Orthocuban.

Inspired by the Newton's theories on lights and color spectrum,  Santiago Ortiz decided to use colors rather than numbers or letters to identify each basic set. He created an interactive and isomorphic version of the original 7 Venn Diagram, meaning that the same topology was kept and the surface areas were balanced, so each piece has a similar visual importance.

The above screenshot is the Side B of the 7 sets Venn Diagram after selecting an area which combines four colors: Gold, LawnGreen, DodgerBlue and Blue to get CadetBlue. When you start playing around with 7 sets Venn Diagram the Side A is presented and you can hover the mouse to slect an area and see the selected Venn. You spin and see the other side just dragging the mouse horizontally.  The name of colors used for this Veen Diagram are listed here.

I invite you to play around with this playful object for the mind, the interactive 7 sets Venn Diagram.  Enjoy it!
