This paper describes an approach to introducing guidance into choosing color representations, based on 'metavisualizations' and their use within formalized models of the visualization process. Metavisualizations are designed to allow fully manual color selection processes in a manner that can incorporate intelligence progressively. Autonomous agents, designed for each metavisualization, make sensible decisions based on stored knowledge in the context of the underlying models. Color selection can thus increment from fully manual through to fully automated. Choices exercised by the autonomous agents can at any stage be manually overridden by direct interaction with the metavisualization. The approach also encourages implicit user learning. Application examples show the mapping of various data sets into the perceptual gamut of a color display device, where metavisualizations provide an interactive graphical interface for controlling the choice of mappings.
