Perceptually uniform colormaps
Updated Wed, 02 Oct 2019 10:34:37 +0000
Perceptually uniform colormaps adds 4 new colormaps that are:
1) Perceptually uniform (delta color is equal in all delta data)
2) Colorblind friendly
3) Good at grayscale conversion
Colormaps have been taken from https://bids.github.io/colormap/ , the discussion of the new default colromaps in python's matplotlib.
It should work for any Matlab release (both with the new and old graphics handles)
Colormaps created by: Stéfan van der Walt and Nathaniel Smith.
The colormaps have been published under a (CC0) Creative Commons License by the original authors. I do not own any copyright on them, this is a simple repackaging of the colormaps for MATLAB.

Fixed unnecessary preallocation
Updated error when interpolating in HSV from 1-0 and changed the name of parula to avoid shadowing.
Colormaps have a name now: Magma, Inferno, Plasma and Viridis.
Improved speed of interpolation and modified demo2 for fanciness.
Updated bug in demos
py_D_cmap changed name to its official name: viridis
added info and updated colormaps and demo to accept an argument for the size of the colormap
