Reply [to "Comment on 'Color Schemes for Improved Data Graphics,' by A. Light and P. J. Bartlein"]
By calling attention to the perception of data graphics among color-impaired readers, we hoped to raise awareness of an even more prevalent phenomenon: the misuse of spectral, or “rainbow,” color schemes. David B. Stephenson is quite right regarding the incidence of different forms of color-vision impairment, which varies among racial and ethnic groups and is […]
