Research output: Non-textual formComputer programmeResearch


tricolore is an R library providing a flexible color scale for the visualization of three-part/ternary compositions. Its main functionality is to color-code any ternary composition as a mixture of three primary colours and to draw a suitable color-key. tricolore flexibly adapts to different visualisation challenges via

- discrete and continuous color support
- support for unbalanced compositional data via centering
- support for data with very narrow range via scaling
- hue, chroma and lightness options
