Applying a Color Map - ThatGuyCraig - 11-14-2014 04:10 PM

So, I'm wondering what it considered acceptable for this.
For example, say I were to take two RGB values rgbMin and rgbMax and calculate a range for each of the individual RGB components. After I do this, I multiply each of these ranges by a percentage(Determined by point data) resulting in a color mapped as so rgbComponentMin + ((Range) * percentage). Would this be considered acceptable? It would be the equivalent of applying a 2 color gradient map.

It looks like you're just varying lightness of one color (purple)... Am I missing something? Usually when I hear "2-color colormap", I think of hue variation (e.g. purple to orange) - which is often not as effective as lightness, anyway.

We don't require anything specific - just make sure you can justify what you do in your report.
