File Information

The choice of colormaps for data visualization can affect the information accessible to color-blind users. For example large patches of cyan in an image with a bitonal cyan-magenta colormap (Matlab's "cool") might become invisible to Protanopes if displayed on white background.


This file inspired Cubehelix Colormaps: Beautiful, Distinct, Versatile! and Color Brewer: Attractive And Distinctive Colormaps.
