History


DivergentColorMaps

Can create a continuous diverging color map starting from any two RGB colors, by converting to linear-RGB, then XYZ, then CIELAB, and finally into Msh, a polar-coordinate version of CIELAB. These color palettes are useful for visualizing data where both large low and high values are interesting, with a well-defined midpoint.
