Back story of its creation:
A good friend of mine ( Hi Pete ! ) is completely colour blind, in other words he views
the world as shades of grey. After looking at a pie chart, he told me his frustration
when things rely on colour coding.
Out of curiosity I converted various charts and maps to greyscale, and saw for
myself just how confusing they can become. See download page for examples.
I was disappointed at the few bits software available, they were either color pickers, hue shifters for partial blindness, no longer available, or just a pain to use.
So after various experiments and learning about how oddly we perceive colour, this little tool was born. Most importantly it was fun to make 🙂
