End of the Rainbow? New Map Scale is More Readable by People Who Are Color Blind - Scientific American

'There are several reasons why the rainbow color scale is problematic. '

'Data visualizations using rainbow color scales are ubiquitous in many fields of science, depicting everything from ocean temperatures to brain activity to Martian topography. '

'Now scientists at a U.S. Department of Energy laboratory have developed a color scale that is mathematically optimized to be accurate for both color blind people and those with normal vision. '

'To create the new color scale, the scientists built a software tool based on a cutting-edge mathematical model of human vision. '

'Hawkins and other scientists have made some inroads with software companies, convincing some to switch their defaults to better color schemes. '
