Nominal color coding is the aesthetic and functional use of color to convey qualitative information in graphical environments. The specification of high-contrast color sets is a fundamental step in this process.

Abstract

Nominal color coding is the aesthetic and functional use of color to convey qualitative information in graphical environments. The specification of high-contrast color sets is a fundamental step in this process. We formulate the color-coding problem here as a combinatorial optimization problem on graphs and present an algorithm that performs well and does not require that the function used to code the similarity between colors be a distance function.
