A color palette, or simply palette (also known as a "colormap" or "color index"), is a lookup table of color values. It most frequently used for simple image compression, but can also be used for other purposes. For example, GoldSrc GoldSrc reads from a palette to know what color to render legacy particle effects from Quake Quake.
