Algorithm Development for Making Colormaps

In a recent post, I mentioned LazyWeb. It worked better than I expected. Matt posted some code that I requested that will highlight a line when you click on it. This works exactly as hoped. Ned thought this was great, so he posted a request for some code that makes colormaps. I took up the challenge, mostly so that I could record how I went about developing an algorithm. I broke this into two videos:

Part 1 This is the first part in a series of videos giving examples of developing colormaps in MATLAB.

Part 2 This is the second part in a series of videos giving examples of developing colormaps in MATLAB.
