Coloroordinates


Inspired by a technical vignette in Neal Stephenson's Reamde, I built a little tool that will display the color distribution of an uploaded image in 3 space*, projecting the red, green, and blue values of each pixel along the x, y, and z axes respectively.

I call it Coloroordinates.

*caveat emptor: displaying things in 3d in the browser is extremely difficult and relies on technology that didn't exist until a few years ago, as such I recommend using an up-to-date version of Chrome or Firefox on an OS newer than windows XP to view the application.
