What is Venn Diagram

A Venn diagram is an graphical illustration of the relationships between and among sets of data, groups of objects that share something in common. The Venn Diagram is made up of two or more overlapping circles that show all possible logical relations between a finite collection of sets. Venn diagram is also called as Set Diagram and Venn Chart and is used to illustrate areas of overlap between elements.

Definitions of Venn Diagram

2 Alternate Definitions of Venn Diagram

Venn diagram is a diagram with overlapping circles that show similarities, differences, and relationships between the sets to make them visually represented. Similarities between groups are represented in the intersecting portions of the circles, while differences are represented in the non-intersecting portions of the circles.

A diagram using circles to represent sets, with the position and overlap of the circles indicating the relationships between the sets.

History of Venn Diagram

The Venn diagram was developed by John Venn, an English mathematician. Venn diagram is actually commemorated in the form of a stained glass window at his former college. By graphically showing how sets of data related to each other, Venn greatly clarified the field of set theory. Later mathematicians tweaked with the form of the Venn diagram, but the basic system remains the same, and in wide use around the world.

Why use Venn Diagram

Venn diagram is very useful as a graphics organization tool while comparing and contrasting two things, two subjects, two places, two things, or even two different people. It is used in scientific and engineering presentations, in computer sciences, in theoretical mathematics, and in statistics. Venn diagrams can help you see how much different things have in common. For example, on a marketing team you might use a Venn diagram to demonstrate how different market sectors overlap. On a human resource department you might use a Venn diagram to demonstrate how different staff's skills overlap. In a classroom, the teachers might use a Venn diagram to get students think about the relationships between things.
