Good line plot color cycle for colorblind readers?

Hi all,

This is a bit of a case of lazy mailing list, but I’m hoping there might be some experts here who can point me in the right direction.

Does anyone know of a good resource to pull a color cycle for line plots that are good for color-blind readers? I’m currently writing a paper that includes a number of plots that include multiple line plots in the same axes, and it would be nice if I’m not alienating a significant fraction of my readers with a poor color choice.

Thanks very much for your help!

See https://github.com/matplotlib/matplotlib/pull/2871 and the links there in. This colormap should be in 1.4.x as 'Wistia'.

http://matplotlib.org/users/colormaps.html has some references.

There is an open PR to add a color-blind filter an any artist https://github.com/matplotlib/matplotlib/pull/3279 but I am not sure of it’s state.

You might want to cycle line types and/or thicknesses along with colors. You could also check out the seaborn line color palettes.

I am a huge fan of cycling line styles in conjunction with cycling colors in general. There is a cycler PR that achieves that goal fairly nicely: https://github.com/matplotlib/matplotlib/pull/4258
