Looking for an answer about modulation and affects I came across with the term "dodecagram".

So I was interested whether this has been already asked here, as I think it would be quite useful but I wonder how? Does it represent more than the simple keyboard pattern of the 12 keys and the circle of fifths as we know it? Do I miss something, or does it just look nice?cle

The only added feature that I can see is the use of color.

The colors tend to be organized by proximity around a given key. C major, which is something like pink/red, is thus most closely aligned with G (pink/orange) and F (red/magenta). The further the two keys, the further their colors are.

To help visualize this, consult a color wheel:

We see that red is farthest from green, and sure enough, as opposites to the red of C and F, we have keys like F♯, B, and E.
