Polyscope supports the following color maps (set via the enum
Different color maps are appropriate for different situations:
- sequential maps data in to a linear range (when it doesn’t fall in to one of the more specific categories below).
- diverging maps data in to a linear range, where the center value is “neutral” and the endpoints of the range are opposite and symmetric. Examples include a rate of change, or a residual; in both cases
0semantially means “nothing”, and the endpoints have opposite meaning.
- cyclic maps data defined on the circle, like an angle
- decorative maps should generally not be used to encode numerical data, but may be useful for other visualization purposes
