Periodic table of Fermi surfaces

At the University of Florida, there is a really nice site which shows the calculated Fermi surfaces of all the metallic elements. The picture above is the Fermi surface of Scandium. Different colours correspond to different bands. In this case, I suspect yellow and purple, also represent electron and hole Fermi surfaces, respectively.

There is a cool poster which shows a periodic table with a picture of each Fermi surface.
