Electronic map is widely used in our daily life. The color matching of electronic map affects the recognition speed of users. In order to improve the user’s recognition and search speed of the target, based on the actual needs of the user, this study proposes four color schemes for the existing electronic map, and carries out experimental research in the indoor light source environment. In the experiment, task performance index and subjective evaluation method are adopted to obtain the optimal scheme 3, followed by scheme 4. The conclusion of this study can be used in electronic map design.
