A text intended for professionals involved in the design process, visual display managers, human factors engineers, computer scientists, and also as a secondary text reference for human factors and human-computer-interaction classes. The increasing use of colour in electronic displays has been one of the major developments in the computer interface in recent years. Colour not only adds an aesthetic quality to displays but is also a most effective way of conveying complex information. It has important uses in tasks where identification, coding and response times are critical. Unfortunately, many interface designers have little scientific appreciation of the effective and productive use of colour in displays in the context of the human visual system. David Travis' book provides both the theoretical background and the practical guidelines for effective use of colour in the computer display. "Effective Colour Displays" may be used as a tutorial text for courses on colour displays or a practical guide for hands-on design. It is intended for programmers, engineers and psychologists concerned with colour applications at the user interface. The book provides an introduction to both the colour visual and display systems and develops into a full practical text for effective colour display design. Colour illustrations, as well as functions for colour manipulation in C, look-up tables for colour coordinates and a checklist for display environments are included.
