Your ScalarMaps of exp to Hue and err to Saturation will
accomplish that, inside the display.  That is, exp and err
values will be linearly scaled to Hue and Saturation values,
according to any calls you make to ScalarMap.setRange(), and
the resulting HSV values converted internally to RGB for
display on the screen.

If you want explicit access to these value in your aplication,
you could write code to linearly scale exp and err values to
Hue and Saturation, supply a constant default Value value,
combine these to create HSV values, then convert to RGB using

If you do not need explicit access to the RGB values, but only
want them to appear on the screen, then VisAD will do that
internally.  All you need to supply is the ScalarMaps and the
raw data.
