It seems you want to work with values between 0-255. For uint16 datasets, you can put it inside 0-255 range like this: $newValue = 255 * \frac{oldValue}{(2^{16} - 1)}$ where $oldValue$ is an uint16 value and $2^{16} - 1$ is the uint16 max number. For the float ones without any previous knowledge about its range, you could read all the values from the ...
