A ``color map'' consists of a set of cells defining color values. The color map associated with a window is used to display the contents of the window; each pixel value indexes the color map to produce RGB values that drive the guns of a monitor. Depending on hardware limitations, one or more color maps may be installed at one time such that windows associated with those maps display with true colors.
Same as color table.
a table that is used to translate the original colors in graphics output to different colors when replaying graphics output using the GREPLAY procedure. The table is contained in a catalog entry.
A hardware implementation of a color look-up table. The frame buffer hardware uses each 8-bit pixel value as an index into this table when refreshing the physical display.
an area of memory where GUI systems map logical color numbers to hardware color codes
a three-dimensional display of a noise or vibration spectrum as a function of time or speed
a list of colors that is used by many pigments to color an object. The default color map is a blend from black to white. ( Language Reference)
A table of index-to-RGB mappings that's accessed by the display hardware. Each color index is read from the color buffer, converted to an RGB triple by lookup in the color map, and sent to the monitor.
a color plot visually representing deviations from actual to theoretical. Example: A customer requests a colormap inspection when needing to compare as-designed CAD files to as-build part data.
(see color table)
a graphical technique to visualize differences between the measured configuration of an object and its CAD model; dimensional differences are mapped onto the CAD model using a color spectrum to indicate location and magnitude. A reference key maps the deviations to values.
A texture map that modifies the color of a material.
