Mapping Center : Color ramps reorganized

Color ramps reorganized

We recently made some changes to the color ramp styles on Mapping Center under the ArcGIS Resources tab. You will now find a single ZIP file that contains a variety of color ramps. Our purpose in reorganizing the color ramps was to make it easier to find and use the color ramps.   The way we did that was to organize all the color ramps of a particular theme into a separate style file.  Then we gave each of the style file a name that better describes the purpose of the color ramps.

The .zip file contains color ramps for the following:

  • Desert environments
  • Hypsometry (elevation) developed using Imhof’s guidelines in Cartographic Relief Presentation
  • Special cartographic effects (like the park boundary used on the Crater Lake National Park map)
  • Special events (fire, global warming)
  • Water bodies
  • Water dynamics (water currents – direction and velocity)
Click on any of the images below to see a full-size version of the contents of each of these styles:
