Interactive Creation of Perceptually Uniform Color Maps

2020 Eurographics Conference on Visualization  
A large number of design rules have been identified for color maps used in Scientific Visualization. One of the most important of these is perceptual uniformity, which at the same time is one of the hardest to guarantee when color maps are created from user input. In this paper, we propose parameterized color map models for a variety of application areas. To allow interactive creation of color maps, these models are based on few intuitive parameters, and at the same time guarantee approximate perceptual uniformity.
