Color gradient files extensions:

" ... I use Gimp gradients to generate my color maps. The file format is really simple but editing the palette by hand is a bit painfull. " (Yannick Gingras )

Here is color gradient created from Linas map file :

Baudline color picker

gradients in Gnuplot:





set palette rgbformulae 7,5,15 # default traditional pm3d (black-blue-red-yellow)
test palette





set palette color model HSV
set palette rgbformulae 3, 2, 2
or
set palette model HSV functions gray, 1, 1

show palette rgbformulae
* there are 37 available rgb color mapping formulae:
0: 0
1: 0.5
2: 1
3: x
4: x^2
5: x^3
6: x^4
7: sqrt(x)
8: sqrt(sqrt(x))
9: sin(90x)
10: cos(90x)
11: |x-0.5|
12: (2x-1)^2
13: sin(180x)
14: |cos(180x)|
15: sin(360x)
16: cos(360x)
17: |sin(360x)|
