I have a 256 item vector of RGB triplets derived from
viscm (a tool for creating perceptual color bars in a CIE color space). I am not able to replicate it correctly using the algorithmic color bar facilities in ArcGIS, even when using the CIE LCh and LAB options (because the path taken through the color space is an arc rather than a line, as seems to be assumed in ArcGIS).
Is there a way to specify a color bar by giving it my 256 values directly? If I wanted a multi-part color bar, is there a way to specify that in text format for so that I can interpolate between each of my 256 colors, without having to do it through the GUI?
As a first step, this is designed for raster symbology, but should also be applicable to vectors. Note also that I don't want a discrete colour map, but one that interpolates between the values I specify, ideally in one of the CIE spaces.
