Colorgorical: An interactive color palette generating tool

ColorgoricalHow can we generate color palettes for data visualization that are easy to perceive and enjoyable to experience?

Designed and evaluated using empirical data, Colorgorical helps balance aesthetics and perceptual discriminability.
