Enhanced colormaps for help with color blindness and color deficient viewersThere's an interesting article on improving color maps for scientific visualizations entitled "The End of the Rainbow?

Several of the color maps below were taken with permission from this article.
Thanks to Andrea Hahmann and Joe Grim for bring these tables to our attention.
