Color coding

Posted by Stephen Wrighton on 06 Mar 2007

Part of my freelance project is derived from the statistical representation of large data sets. And one of the statistical representations is a color coding based on frequency. Well I had originally set it up as basically a tri-state frequency to reflect cold/warm/hot status, yet this did not meet the customer's needs.

He wanted a range of colors based on that frequency, so now I've got to find out a way to graduate from red to blue (through yellow) based on a frequency. It shouldn't be that hard, as it's just a matter of converting the color from an RGB code.

Of course I'm saying that from a point of ignorance. Alas, Google here I come.
