Abstract
With the development of information and communication technologies, new technologies are leading to an exponential increase in the volume and types of data available. At this time of the information society, data is one of the most important arguments for policy making, crisis management, research and education, and many other fields. An essential task for experts is to share high-quality data providing the right information at the right time. Designing of data presentation can largely influence the user perception and the cognitive aspects of data interpretation. Significant amounts of data can be visualised in some way. One image can thus replace a considerable number of numeric tables and texts. The paper focuses on the accurate visualisation of data from the point of view of used colour schemes. Bad choose of colours can easily confuse the user and lead to the data misinterpretation. On the contrary, correctly created visualisations can make information transfer much simpler and more efficient.
