Color in Computer Graphics: Manipulating and Matching Color
Color in graphic workstations has rapidly transitioned from a novelty with great expected potential to a highly useful tool for the communication of complex databases to a human brain. Perhaps the most dominant feature of this transition has been the recognition that color provides a significant mechanism for the communication of such large and complex sources of information. This realization builds a critical cornerstone of the emerging discipline of interactive visualization. Although disagreement exists within the graphics industry as to the exact definition of visualization, most experts agree that the concept connotes the ability to render complex databases by visual means in order to capitalize on the sensory processing capability of the visually-oriented human mind.
