Why is this weird shape located in xyz coordinate instead of using another coordinate system that makes it simpler and make the MacAdam Ellipse about the same size?


@echo Here's a video that explains why these points align at the points they do rather than at the peaks. In short, the curve describes the visual spectrum's path, while the points are located at "absolute" p1=blue, p2=red, p3=green. The space not contained are colors that our eye can see, but can't be represent by adding a combination of points together. The video also makes an interesting note of subtracting the opposing color, to obtain these colors but this is difficult when working with positively defining models used in monitors.
