Samenvatting

Color is widely used in data visualization to show data values. The proper selection of colors is critical to convey information correctly. In this paper, we present a technique for generating univariate lightness ordered palettes. These are specified via intuitive input parameters that are used define the appearance of the palette: number of colors, hue, lightness, saturation, contrast and hue range. The settings of the parameters are used to generate curves through CIELUV color space. This color space is used in order to correctly translate the requirements in terms of perceptual properties to a set of colors. The presented palette generation method enables users to specify palettes that have these perceptual properties, such as perceived order, equal perceived distance and equal importance. The technique has been integrated in Magna View, a system for multivariate data visualization.
