PICKING A COLOUR SCALE FOR SCIENTIFIC GRAPHICS
« on: January 10, 2018, 11:01:52 AM »
Here are some recommendations for making scientific graphics which help your audience understand your data as easily as possible. Your graphics should be striking, readily understandable, should avoid distorting the data (unless you really mean to), and be safe for those who are colourblind. Remember, there are no really “right” or “wrong” palettes (OK, maybe a few wrong ones), but studying a few simple rules and examples will help you communicate only what you intend.
