A number of well-known tools exist to support the design of colormaps. ColorBrewer [HB03], for example, is a great resource to select colors for qualitative, sequential, and diverging data. PRAVDAColor [BRT95] and Tominski et al. [TFS08], for example, provide valuable guidelines for single analysis tasks such as localization, identification, and comparison. However, for solving real world problems in most practical applications, single elementary analysis tasks are not sufficient but need to be combined. In this paper, we propose a methodology and tool to design colormaps for combined analysis tasks. We define color mapping requirements and develop a set of design guidelines. The visualization expert is integrated in the design process to incorporate his/her design requirements, which may depend on the application, culture, and aesthetics. Our ColorCAT tool guides novice and expert designers through the creation of colormaps and allows the exploration of the design space of color mapping for combined analysis tasks.</dcterms:abstract> <dc:creator>Keim, Daniel A.</dc:creator> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <dc:rights>terms-of-use</dc:rights> <dcterms:hasPart rdf:resource=""/> <dc:creator>Stoffel, Florian</dc:creator> <dcterms:rights rdf:resource=""/> <dc:contributor>Stoffel, Florian</dc:contributor> <dc:date rdf:datatype="">2015-12-17T14:44:48Z</dc:date> <dspace:hasBitstream rdf:resource=""/> <dc:contributor>Mittelstädt, Sebastian</dc:contributor> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource=""/> <dc:contributor>Keim, Daniel A.</dc:contributor> <dc:creator>Jäckle, Dominik</dc:creator> <dc:creator>Mittelstädt, Sebastian</dc:creator> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="">2015-12-17T14:44:48Z</dcterms:available> <dcterms:title>ColorCAT : Guided Design of Colormaps for Combined Analysis Tasks</dcterms:title> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource=""/> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
