Scientific colour maps

Crameri, Fabio

Researcher(s)
Shephard, Grace E.

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

The development of the Scientific colour maps is not funded any longer, but will continue as a pro bono project for the scientific community. - Fabio
