CIE Colour Representation

The Commission International de l'Eclairage created this graphical representation to show the eye's sensitivity to light.  The shape and scale of the diagram are a result of plotting a linear visual response to light stimuli.  The spectral frequencies are shown around the horseshoe shaped portion of the graph.  All of the colours combine to create White in the lower middle of the graph.
    Earl F. Glinn II set up a website that explores colour in the Computer Lab section.  A link to CIE Chromaticity Diagrams can be found there.
