Oh, the new, perceptual MatplotLib colormaps….. Here’s one stunning, recent Truecolor image of Pluto from the New Horizons mission: Below, I recolored using two of the new colormaps:

In the first post of this series I argued that we should not build colormaps for azimuth (or phase) data by interpolating linearly between fully saturated hues in RGB or HSL space. A first step […]
In New Matlab isoluminant colormap for azimuth data I showcased a Matlab colormap that I believe is perceptually superior to the conventional, HSV-based colormaps for azimuth data, in that it does not […]
The other day I stumbled into an interesting article on The Guardian online: The medieval bishop who helped to unweave the rainbow. In the article I learned for the first time of Robert […]
In the comment section of my last post, Steve asked if I had code to generate a Surfer.clr file from my Matlab colormaps. Some time ago I did write a […]
Spectral lightness rainbow Quick post to share my replica of Ethan Montag ‘s Spectral lightness colormap from this paper. My version has a linear Lightness profile (Figure 1) that increases monotonically […]
Why another rainbow In the comment section of my last post Steve Eddins from Mathworks reported that some Matlab users prefer Jet to Parula, the new default perceptual colormap in Matlab, because within certain ranges […]
