In another look at the data from xkcd’s color experiment, Stephen Von Worley looks at the common and not so common colors of the rainbow:
The Color Strata includes the 200 most common color names (excluding black-white-grayish tones), organized by hue horizontally and relative usage vertically, stacked by overall popularity, shaded representatively, and labeled where possible. Besides filtering spam, ignoring cruft, normalizing grey to gray, and correcting the most egregious misspellings (here’s looking at you, fuchsia), the results are otherwise unadulterated.
The results correspond nicely with Martin and Dolores Labs’ color wheels from a couple of years ago.
