Colourbar naming convention
DUG Insight comes with a set of colourbars for data display. Below is a complete list of all default colourbars, grouped by similar characteristics.
Note: Click on the images below to view them in their original size.
Colourbars with the prefix "Banded" have the following characteristics:
- multiple bands of colour
- strong contrasts
- hard edges.
Colourbars with the prefix "NegPos" are intended for zero-mean (symmetric) data with white or neutral central colour.
Note: For those of you interested in minimising data distortion by using perceptually uniform colour-maps. We've made some DUG-Insight colourbars inspired by Fabio Crameri's scientific colour-maps, which can be downloaded here.
