While this is not a new addition to QGIS anymore – in fact it has been around since 1.4 – I feel it’s not as widely know as it should be: QGIS offers the power of ColorBrewer to create color ramps! And this is how you get to use this power:
All styles: marker, line, fill and color ramps can be accessed via “Style manager”:
In Style Manager you can add, edit and delete styles:
When creating a new color ramp, you get to choose between “Gradient”, “Random” and finally “ColorBrewer” ramp type. (By the way: You can create multi-color color ramps if you choose “Gradient”.)
When creating a ColorBrewer ramp, you can choose from various schemes and define how many colors your ramp should contain:
I love these new ramps and I wish I’d have discovered them sooner :)
Enjoy the power of ColorBrewer and QGIS!
