|Albers boxes on the Cooper-Hewitt site|
The outer ring of an Albers box represents the department that an object belongs to. The middle ring represents the period that an object is part of. The inner ring denotes the type of object. When you mouse over an Albers box we display a legend for each one of the colors.Of course, you know what I immediately thought. That we need our own version. And we have exactly the right reference already.
