The slides are organised into nine modules of twelve slides each, as follows:

1C Slides 25-36
Using Colour Effectively in Displays

The material has been carefully prepared by Prof Lindsay MacDonald of MacColour Limited and subjected to expert academic review to guarantee accuracy and high quality throughout. The first set of slides formed an earlier slideset and anyone who wishes to upgrade their set rather than taking all the slides should contact the people named below.

The publication was commissioned by the UK Advisory Group on Computer Graphics (AGOCG).
