For daily use, scientific papers are often printed in black&white (i.e., grey scale), which normally causes figures to become unreadable. Making black&white readability an integral property of colour maps, importantly contributes to the wider accessibility of the visualised data and, on top of that, saves colour ink, money and, if only to a little part, the environment.
All Scientific Colour Maps are readable in black & white prints.
