A **harmonic lattice diagram** (**lattice**) is an instrument to visualize relations of tones. It's a projection of a multi-dimensional structure onto a 2D screen.

English Wikipedia has an article on:

The **Tonnetz** is the lattice that represents 12edo's mapping of 5-limit intervals. **Vogel's Tonnetz** is a 7-limit version of Euler's 5-limit Tonnetz.

## Examples

A square lattice representing marvel temperament.

A hexagonal lattice representing 41edo's mapping of 5-limit intervals, using ups and downs notation.

A hexagonal lattice representing a subset of 7-limit intervals, using color notation.
