I want to reverse the color ramp in ArcMap 10.2. In the example below, I want the red colour to be associated with lower values and the green color with the higher values.

Any idea how to do this?

  • It's not obvious how to do it. In that context menu there's also 'Properties for all symbols' which will allow you to change the outline colour (or no colour) for all your symbols, for example: by default it's 0.4 grey outline but sometimes you don't want an outline, instead of changing each one individually you can change them all to have no outline.

To reverse the colour ramp applied to feature symbols: enter image description here

Right click on the symbol column then from the context symbol select 'Flip Symbols'. Note that any specific changes made to a particular symbol will be overwritten by this action.
