Is there a way in QGIS to have a color ramp for a raster layer (DEM layer), which adjusts to a changing scale while zooming in, and out, of the map extent?

Here is an online map made based on LIDAR, which does that: http://sggw.maps.arcgis.com/apps/webappviewer/index.html?id=c0ecc5457a2249eba0fcfaeafd40f760

When you see the map as a whole, there seems to be little variation, but once you zoom in to a larger scale, the color ramp adjusts its colors to min and max values.

It would be great to create a map with an adjusting color ramp, that way I could show the whole picture, but also export maps showing local variations.

  • do you mean you want to have the ramp automatically adjust to the range of values in the extent? (As in this question ). – Steven Kay Apr 18 '17 at 21:04
  • Pratically, the same question as gis.stackexchange.com/questions/230524/…. Please, explain how it is different, and what you have tried. – Andre Silva Apr 19 '17 at 12:37
  • Yes! But unfortunately it works only on grey scales. Is there a new tool working also on pseudocolor scales? – Lula Apr 19 '17 at 16:32
