Applies the fly categorical colour vision model of Troje (1993)

categorical(vismodeldata)

Arguments

vismodeldata

(required) quantum catch color data. Can be either the result from vismodel() or independently calculated data (in the form of a data frame with four columns named 'u' ,'s', 'm', 'l', representing a tetrachromatic dipteran viewer).

Value

Object of class colspace consisting of the following columns:

  • R7p, R7y, R8p, R8y: the quantum catch data used to calculate the remaining variables.

  • x, y: cartesian coordinates in the categorical colour space.

  • r.vec: the r vector (saturation, distance from the center).

  • category: fly-colour category. One of p-y-, p-y+, p+y-, p+y+.
