Available Colormaps

IdentifierDescriptionWMS Legend Example
blue_magentaColormap with custom markings for precipitation. The inverted version is magenta_blue without custom markers.
blue_to_redColormap with fixed parameter dependent scaling. Also exists as an inverted version called red_to_blue.
bluesColormap with fixed parameter dependent scaling.
blues_invertedInversion of blues.
ceiling_height_segmentedDesigned for ceiling_height_agl parameters.
dwd_warningsSegmented colormap intended to be used for warn parameters.
grayColormap with fixed parameter-dependent scaling.
gray_invertedInversion of gray.
gray_transparentGrayscale from transparent to white.
jetColormap with fixed parameter-dependent scaling that goes from blue to red with green in between.
jet_invertedInversion of jet.
jet_segmentedA segmented version of jet with 40 steps.
jet_segmented_invertedInversion of jet_segmented.
lifted_index_globalA colormap specifically created to display the subtle changes of the lifted index on a global scale.
lifted_index_global_segmentedA segmented version of lifted_index_global.
magenta_blueInversion of blue_magenta.
periodicPeriodic colormap with fixed parameter dependent scaling. Best used for periodic quantities like directions.
periodic_invertedInversion of periodic.
plasmaColormap with fixed parameter dependent scaling that goes from purple to yellow.
plasma_invertedInversion of plasma.
precip_usa_segmentedColormap with fixed parameter dependent logarithmic scaling, developed for displaying precipitation according to US standards.
prismColormap with fixed parameter dependent scaling, but without a one-to-one correspondence between values and colors.
prism_invertedInversion of prism.
radar_logColormap with fixed parameter dependent logarithmic scaling, developed for displaying precipitation.
radar_segmentedAn alternative to display precipitation.
redsColormap with fixed parameter dependent scaling, where the smallest value corresponds to white and the largest one to red.
reds_invertedInversion of reds.
red_to_blueInversion of blue_to_red.
red_yellow_greenAn inverted traffic light, useful e.g. for visibility where lower values correspond to more problematic situations.
seismicColormap with fixed parameter dependent scaling, similar to blue_to_red but with stronger colors.
seismic_invertedInversion of seismic.
t_europeColormap with fixed parameter dependent scaling developed to display temperature in mid-lattitude areas throughout the whole year in pleasant colors.
t_europe_segmentedA segmented variant of t_europe.
t_globalColormap with fixed parameter dependent scaling developed to display temperature on the whole globe throughout the whole year, focussing on subtle changes.
t_global_segmentedA segmented variant of t_global.
traffic_lightFrom red to green, best suited for warning parameters where low values correspond to higher risks.
traffic_light_invertedFrom green to red, best suited for warning parameters where high values correspond to higher risks.
viridisColormap with fixed parameter-dependent scaling, where the smallest value corresponds to blue and the largest value to yellow.
viridis_invertedInversion of viridis.
visibility_segmentedDesigned for the visibility:m parameter with transparency for high values.
wave_height_segmentedColormap from blue to red, developed for displaying wave heights.
