In all the joy and appreciation for genetic comparison there had always been left an annoying rest about the used color sets, changing each time. I tried to imagine a unified system, which could help to identify a certain position, tying specific components to visual avatars. No matter, what representants we choose, a genetic neighbourhood will create similar colours. We could do maps for specific reference populations and see, what kind of distribution they produce.
The first idea was to head for the triangle structure of the "Global similarity" tools of 23andme and deCODEme. I tried to create a triangle set of colours, using the CMYK system and combine them:
This is a first approach, so any comments are welcome!

Populations already change colours in your own pictures: in 1 & 2 French Basques would be the "bluest", while in 3 & 4 for some reason Orcadians are depicted as that.
Orcadian should be on the most blue corner. The french Basque belong to those in a second step, that could have a varied colour, using the K-scale ( either making it lighter or darker ) But the detracted map put some colours in disorder!Löschen
