Color Brewer Addon
October 23 2010 |
Is there a Color Brewer add on that makes using her color selection choices easier? My students like her color scales, but have to enter them as RGB values for each color in the scale. Am I missing an available add on that incorporates her schemes into the program more easily?
Mapping Center Answer:
Yes, there is a ColorBrewer add in that was developed by the National Cancer Institute.
You can download the tool from: http://gis.cancer.gov/tools/colortool/
Once you follow the installation steps, you will be able to access the tool by clicking on a Color Tool button in ArcMap.
The interface of the Color Tool allows you to select which feature class you want to classify, the field you want to use to classify the data, the classification method, what type of classification (sequential, qualitative, diverging), as well as the ability to select which ColorBrewer ramp you want to use.
When you click Apply, the map is updated to reflect your selections.
This is a great tool and you don't have to type in all of the RGB values!
