1. A computer readable memory for directing a computer that is connected to a display and a pointing device to process parameter associated image data, the parameter associated image data representing a parameter associated image associated with a parameter and including data points with values for the parameter, the computer readable memory comprising:

  • a color mapping routine stored thereon and configured to;

    generate color mapping tool image data in response to the object associated image data, the color mapping tool image data representing an image of a color mapping tool that includes (i) a histogram of the values, (ii) value range identifying cursors, (iii) a color strip of colors, and (iv) color range identifying cursors, and generate a color mapping of a specific range of the colors in the color strip to a specific range of the values in the histogram when (i) the value range identifying cursors are manipulated with the pointing device to identify the specific range of values, and (ii) the color range identifying cursors are manipulated with the pointing device to identify the specific range of colors; and

    a data formatting routine stored thereon and configured to;

    format the color mapping tool image data for display of the image of the color mapping tool on the display; and

    format the parameter associated image data for display of the parameter associated image on the display by assigning colors to the data points of the parameter associated image data according to the color mapping.
