One of the areas exposed by my eDNA challenge submissions is my difficulty choosing a good colour palette. I’ve used many tools, but it’s still a bit of a hit-and-miss endeavour for me (especially on the latest challenge). I happened upon a link included in today’s GIAC roundup about a post by Datawrapper entitled How to pick more beautiful colors for your data visualizations: Common color mistakes and how to avoid them. I found it a good read and thought I’d share.
Also, in this post I found a useful link to a site where you can visualize an entire palette based on a starting HEX code, and again thought I’d share.
Happy palette creation.
