Visualizing the XKCD Color Survey

Some time ago, the folks at xkcd conducted a color name survey: they showed people colors, and asked them to type a name they might use for that color.

This is a visualization of the responses — drag to explore, and scroll to zoom in.

For performance reasons, we don't show all the data at once. Try searching to see more detail, or play with the different sizing options to bring out different colors.
