07 Mar 2012 SC - powerful image rendering Useful tool for rendering and outputting information rich images Author: Oliver Woodford

Very nice framework! Works like a charm!
A little request which would make it even more useful: I would like to tell sc which axes-handle to use -> I would like to use it inside a GUI. is something like this imaginable? Or is sc not going to have enough flexibility in such a manner, since the axis position (&size) are going to be fixed? Any thoughts on this?

Thank you John, for this constructive comment. The code has been modified as you suggested! I admit I was not aware of these conventions with the H1 line. Thanks for pointing it out!

You might also be interested in my other colormap-contribution: "isolum" a colormap that keeps the luminescence constant while incorporating as many colors as possible:

23 Dec 2010 Assertion function A function similar to "assert" in C to assist in bug detection Author: Malcolm Wood

Perfect for backwards-compatibility!
@Peter: this is the case since 2007, but if you are "forced" to work with older versions, the file is perfect.

Not that it matters a lot, but I've noticed that unzipping the archive on Linux results in __MACOSX archive being created in addition to colormaps_mathworks_v11. I am not sure if this is a result of how the file was compressed, but perhaps it could be cleaned up if it is.

Otherwise, thank you for this submission, firemap is my favorite color scheme. Perhaps it would be useful to note that "morgenstemning" is the old "firemap" submission, for us who are making the switch (I preferred "firemap" for the name - it was easier to spell and remember).

I've had some time to play with this now. Neat. I spent some time many years ago working with simulations of color blindness, so I am quite happy to see the authors provide this utility.

Some interesting ideas that I like here, plus a few things that I don't like at all.

The code has enough help in the beginning, but it lacks one very important tool - an H1 line. The H1 line is the very first line of comment. (Look at ANY matlab function provided by The MathWorks. What is the first comment line? For example besselj.)

The H1 line contains a descriptive line of text that explains what the function does. It includes key words that a user will search for. When you provide an H1 line, it enables lookfor to work. In the example, suppose I wanted to use a bessel function, but I did not remember that besselj is the tool I needed? I would type in matlab

lookfor bessel

Matlab will not respond with a list of names of half a dozen functions that do something with bessel functions, as well as those descriptive H1 lines that were so thoughtfully provided.

In your case, the very first line of comment that you provided was less helpful:

%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%

The only search that will ever find your code using lookfor will be a rather uninteresting search. Face it, not everybody will remember the name "fireprint" next month or next year, or even next week, when they want to use the code they downloaded. This is what lookfor enables.

The next thing I don't like is the use of a non-standard MATLAB interface. Arguments must be provided as a structure. The MATLAB paradigm is to use property/value pairs for a problem like this. In this code, you must provide a structure with field names of .minColor, .maxColor, and .invert.

Requiring correctly spelled field names, including correct capitalization is not terribly friendly.
