Color Palette Analyzer

Attention to color names is important for data visualization. Ensuring that each color can be unambiguously named makes it easier to refer to elements in conversation. Experimental evidence also suggests that nameable colors are better remembered. Here, we use a color naming model to analyze color palettes. This tool examines both individual saliency scores (how uniquely "nameable" a color value is) and color name distance (how much the names used to describe palette colors "overlap").
