It was one of these raining autumn weekends where I’ve found some time to work on some fun stuff for hclwizard.org! The result is a small extension to hclwizard.org. The website now provides a second application which allows you to check your own images regarding color-blind issues.
The HCLwizard Converter allows you to upload a png or jpg/jpeg image and to simulate different color-blind vision including protanope vision, deuteranope vision, tritanope vision, and a monochromate version (or black and white version; for people with full color-blindness).
This allows you to check you graphs, maps, and images before you provide them to the public or submit them to a scientific journal. Just as a reminder: about ten percent of all Europeans suffer from a partial or full color-blindness, so please keep this in mind and, if required, come back and use our HCLwizard Converter to check for possible problems with the color map you’re using!
Have a nice and colorful weekend!
All best, Reto
