This diagram image could be recreated using vector graphics as an SVG file. This has several advantages; see Commons:Media for cleanup for more information. If an SVG form of this image is available, please upload it and afterwards replace this template with {{vector version available|new image name}}. It is recommended to name the SVG file "PlanckianLocus.svg" - then the template Vector version available (or Vva) does not need the new image name parameter.


English: CIE xy 1931 chromaticity diagram including the Planckian Locus. The Planckian locus is the path that a black body color will take through the diagram as the black body temperature changes. Lines crossing the locus indicate lines of constant correlated color temperature. Monochromatic wavelengths are shown in blue in units of nanometers. Latest version (16 April 2005) uses 1931 CIE standard observer, since this is the most commonly used standard observer.
