Paper Abstract

The effect of harmonious versus non-harmonious color combinations in one aspect of information visualization effectiveness is considered. One focus is the relative suitability of two competing paradigms for determining color combinations that are harmonious. A second focus is the suitability of using opposing (i.e., opponent) colors for feature presentation in information visualization. The effects are considered for color item overlays on crowded and noncrowded displays. A statistical analysis of human responses is also presented.
