Tutorial on perceptual colormaps

Hi All

I recently wrote a tutorial on how to evaluate and compare colormaps using
perceptual principle. It is geared towards Matplotlib.

http://nbviewer.ipython.org/github/mycarta/tutorials/blob/master/1408_Evaluate_and_compare_colormaps/How_to_evaluate_and_compare_colormaps.ipynb

Although I am a newbie and some of my code may be not all that pythonic
yet, I hope you enjoy the read.

Any feedback would be welcome.

THank you
Matteo

Hi Matteo,

Thanks for sharing this resource.

Also, I wanted to personally thank you for MyCarta. It's a great
resource and Kristen Thyng and I have learned a lot from it. Kristen
cited you in a talk she gave at SciPy 2014 last month. We both gave
talks at SciPy 2014 about colour maps I think you might find
interesting. They were recorded and put on YouTube by Enthought and
you can check them out
here<https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Alnc9E1RnD8> and
here<https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rkDgBvT-giw>.

I think it would be a good idea to link to your IPython (read Jupyter)
notebook, along with some of the work Kristen as done with matplotlib
colour maps, from the matplotlib web page. Would you be amenable to
this?

All the best,
Damon

Really great material (ipython notebook and videos), thanks a lot to you all.

Are the slides available somewhere by any chance ?

Hi Nicolas

I do not have any slides of this material yet. I will try at some point to
upload them on github, although I'm already working on tutorial part two,
so it may take a while.

In the meantime, I have a set of slides from 2012 when I presented this talk:
http://www.cspg.org/cspg/documents/Conventions/Archives/Annual/2012/155_GC2012_A_More_Perceptual_Color_Palette_for_Structure_Maps.pdf

Let me know if you're interested and I will upload them on github.

Hi Damon, yes, I did see your talk and Kristen's and I am really excited
there's good momentum on this topic. I will write you later today about
the matplotlib webpage, great idea.

Thanks to both for your feedback.
Matteo
