I'm really glad to see this topic come up. Area-proportional Venn diagrams are a phantastic way to visualize agreement. For the 2-rater scenario this is straightforward; here are two examples from my own work that were done in R. (I'm far too embarrassed to enclose the code).
http://myweb.dal.ca/partes/venn_example.jpg For 3 (or more!) variables, it becomes tricky, but Chow and Ruskey have solved this recently (see link below). http://www.cs.uvic.ca/~ruskey/Publications/VennArea/VennArea.html I think there is even a Java applet for demonstration purposes. It would be phantastic to have a good R-implementation of this... Unfortunately my own skills are several log units below what's required. I have written to Chow and Ruskey before but unfortunately not heard anything. Anyone up for the job??
