What is a Venn diagram?
A Venn diagram shows all possible logical relations between different sets or groups of data. In a Venn Diagram, each circle circumscribes a set. Overlapping circles build intersections revealing common elements to two or more groups. The chart is also known as ‘Set diagram’ or ‘Logic diagram’.
The main point of interest with Venn diagrams are the intersections. Venn diagrams can consist of multiple circle sets. Most commonly used is the 3-circle or triple Venn diagram.
A brief history of the Venn diagram
The Venn diagram we know today was developed by the English mathematician John Venn. Venn proposed a modification of the Euler diagram to become a more comprehensive visualization for probability. The name “Venn diagram,” however, was not coined by the American philosopher Clarence Irving until several years later in 1918.
