Esri Color Ramps
Most of the color ramps are colorblind friendly. Each ramp was individually tested with a color blindness simulator such as ColorOracle to verify that the ramp shows detectable color variation when the three types of color blindness are simulated.
A color ramp belongs to one or more
tag categories and consists of a
number of colors.
When searching for a specific color ramp, select one or more tags and a number of colors in the ramp. You can also start
with predefined color (or set of colors) by using a color's
hexadecimal value or a series of hexadecimal
values to filter the color ramp selection. Once a color ramp has been isolated, click on the individual color ramp
to view and copy its hexadecimal or rgba values.
There are some tag categories that do not contain all the number of color combinations. When filtering for hexadecimal values including the hash
#at the beginning is optional.
