[matplotlib-devel] RFC: candidates for a new default colormap

Hopefully
I will have some time today to play around with the D option. I want to
see if I can shift the curve a bit to include more yellows and orange so that it can have a mix of cool and warm colors.

I was thinking the same thing earlier. Here’s my attempt:
blu_grn_pnk2.png

Note
to Ben, et al, you got an e-mail from me earlier that bounced to the list (too big). This is a less muted version of that colormap.

Not to jump back on topics too much, but I forgot to attach the colormap to
my earlier e-mail. Here it is.

Joe,

Thank you--that's an interesting option. It reminds me of the middle half of cubehelix in the Miscellaneous set:

http://matplotlib.org/examples/color/colormaps_reference.html

Cubehelix is also generated by an algorithm.

Your blu_grn_pink2 looks worth adding to the mpl collection.
