Scientific colour maps

Crameri, Fabio

Researcher(s)
Shephard, Grace E.

Suite of scientific, colour-vision deficiency friendly, and perceptually uniform colour maps (http://www.fabiocrameri.ch/colourmaps) that prevent significant visual errors, which would otherwise visually distort the underlying data and mislead the reader.

The development of the scientific colour maps is supported by the Research Council of Norway through its Centers of Excellence funding scheme, Project Number 223272
