Nathaniel Kelso has asked me to post this press release for him:
Bernhard Jenny and I are proud to announce Color Oracle
(http://colororacle.cartography.ch/) for Mac OS 10.3.9 and above available
today (freeware). Links are provided on that site for Windows compatable
tools as well.
Color Oracle takes the guesswork out of designing for color blindness by
showing you in real time how people with common color vision deficiencies
will see your maps and graphics. Color Oracle applies a full screen color
filter to art you are designing ? independently of the software that you
Seeing is believing! Instantaneously identify and correct problem colors
in your art using Color Oracle's system-wide menu and keyboard shortcuts
accessible in any program.
We encourage the cartographic community to make use of this new and
exciting tool to refine maps and graphics for better legibility.

You are aware of the work by Cindy Brewer on mapping and color choices for the color-blind, right?
