Chromaticity diagram A diagram that represents the unit plane (the plane defined by the equation X+Y+Z=1) in a tristimulus space.
The chromaticity diagram is often used as a convenient approximation to a constant brightness plane in the tristimulus space.
Chromaticity is often used as a convenient approximation to chromaticness, which is the hue and saturation of a color ignoring brightness.

 This is Chromaticity Diagram Applet
Below the diagram is a proportional mixer control, that enables you to additively mix colors of the gamut vertices in various proportions to produce a mixture.
As you operate the mixer, the resulting color is displayed below the diagram as a solid rectangle and the color's position is indicated on the chromaticity diagram by the marker.
An interesting property of the chromaticity diagram is that for any gamut (not only triangular) an additive mixture of the vertices' colors always lies inside the gamut.

 International Commission on Illumination - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The diagram is a two-dimensional plot of colours of constant intensity based on the visual response of the CIE-1931 standard observer, which was determined by physiological measurements of human colour vision.
Note that the chromaticity diagram is a tool to specify how the human eye will experience light with a given spectrum.
The cut-offs at the short- and long-wavelength side of the diagram are chosen somewhat arbitrarily; the human eye can actually see light with wavelengths up to about 810 nm, but with a sensitivity that is many thousand times lower than for green light.

 Nat' Academies Press, Procedures for Testing Color Vision: Report of Working Group 41 (1981)
A diagram called the x,y chromaticity diagram was devised by the Commission Internationale of Eclairage (CIE) based on the average color matches of many color-normal observers.
Since the chromaticity diagram represents only color matches and not hues, the hue names added to the chart in Figure A-1 are provided for the convenience of those who are not familiar with the appearance of different wavelength regions of the spectrum.
By associating the coordinates in the x,y chromaticity diagram with their usual series of color appearances to normal trichromats, we can describe approximately which colors are confused by the two types of dichromats.

 How does the lighting industry measure color appearance? | Light Sources and Color | Lighting Answers | NLPIP
Chromaticity - The dominant or complementary wavelength and purity aspects of the color taken together, or of the aspects specified by the chromaticity coordinates of the color taken together.
Since it is known that the chromaticity of any light source can be determined by a linear combination of three primaries, it is possible to abandon the use of real primaries in favor of imaginary primaries that have some useful characteristics.
Also plotted in the diagrams is the flbody locus, which represents the chromaticities of a flbody radiator source, heated to incandescence.

 1931 CIE Chromaticity Diagram
CIE chromaticity diagram is a 2-D diagram in a 3-D (xyz) space, so the best way to present it is to draw it in the 3-D xyz space and allow it to be looked at from different angle.
These diagrams are applets, so it may take a few seconds to draw on a slow computer, but it is accurate to the limits of the displaying monitor while keeping a small download file.
These diagrams are based on 1931 2-degree CIE xyz color matching functions that remain international standards in both colorimetry and photometry.

The chromaticity of any color vector is uniquely determined by the position of its trace on the diagram.

This diagram has the important property that the apparent distinction between two lights is proportional to the distance between points representing them [2,12].

Chromaticity diagrams show two of the three dimensions of color, the third being luminance.
One of the most useful properties of chromaticity diagrams is their convenient representation of mixtures of two lights.
Strictly speaking, chromaticities indicate which lights will match for the standard observer under the exact laboratory conditions that generated the data on which the system is based, given further assumptions about the mathematical properties of human color vision.

“Chromaticity” is color without regard to brightness; each point on the graph represents a specific spectrum (relative combination of visible wavelengths of light).
This lack of perceptual uniformity across the plot is a common criticism of xy chromaticity diagrams (but that's an issue about the plot, not about the color spaces the plot is attempting to illustrate).
The triangles are the range of chromaticities that the two color spaces can represent; keep in mind that the range of brightnesses across which those chromaticities can be encoded in the color space is not at all represented by this graph.

The chromaticity diagram is also used to define color gamuts, or color ranges, that show the effect of adding colors together.
Because the Center of Gravity Law of color mixture holds for the diagram, all colors that are additive mixtures of the vertices of a gamut, are necessarily located inside the gamut.
The diagram is thus useful to compare the gamuts of various color monitors, printers, slide films, and other hardcopy devices.
