Aesthetic color scheme for tracks #1160
In my Open Source maritime analysis application we use colored lines to show the paths where different vessels have travelled:
The 10 specific colors used are shown in the screenshots at the end of this posting.
These colors are used for both displaying vessel tracks (routes) on the map, and in UI listings.
Unfortunately some of these shades have poor contrast against a white UI backdrop, or a white/light-gray map backdrop. Within our chosen technologies it is possible to use custom shades as a backdrop for the lighter shades, but not on the map backdrop.
The shades also lack coherency. Ideally it would be possible to devise a series of color shades that complement each other. Diagrams exported from the software will typically be used in government or industrial technical reports, so the colors cannot be to "garish".
This two-stage task includes the following:
Note 1: Users will frequently copy/paste the chart images into MS Word-style documents, where the image will always have a white backdrop.
The deliverable for this task will be 10 foreground and a number of background shades, presented in RGB color format
Hi there @pecko - once we're on top of the current "dragging" issues, could you make this your next ticket?
We're going to swap the existing set of Debrief colors for this new set. We'll override the set of colors in ImportReplay.initialiseColors(). The first three colors (red, green, blue) should keep their letters from the existing set, but the others can be in any order.
We also need to override them in ColorPropertyEditor.java
Actually - it would be tidier if we could combine these two lists. I guess the list in "cmap.legacy" should be the single set of colors (since debrief.legacy depends on cmap.legacy).
Sorry, the image isn't too clear. We just miss gold color and have new dark blue and medium blue.
