Are there any other options to include ColorBrewer palettes in ArcGIS 10?
If you only need color scheme of ColorBrewer, http://arcscripts.esri.com/details.asp?dbid=14403 is a workaround while waiting for new update of ColorTool.
Here is Nice information about it. http://gis-techniques.blogspot.com/2011/03/how-to-get-color-brewer-ramp-in-arcmap.html
National Cancer Institute have not updated the excellent ColorTool for ArcGIS to ArcMap 10 yet:suggest that an email request sent to the ColorTool Technical Support: email@example.com
From a previous comment I made: I emailed the developers (gis.cancer.gov/tools/colortool) and received the response: "The current installer does not fully succeed in ArcMap 10 environments, however you can manually add the "ColorToolPro9_2.0.tlb" from the installation location (usually c:\program files\NCI GIS Tools\colortool) to add the command to a toolbar. " Which I suppose is a satisfactory workaround.
All the links from the previous answers did not work anymore (at least for me) as of Nov 2019. The
ColorBrewer.style file for ArcGIS 10.xxx can be downloaded from here.
.style file to
C:\Program Files (x86)\ArcGIS\Desktop10.6\Styles (for ArcGIS 10.6). Then add any shapefile to a blank ArcMap document.
- Double click on the layer, go to Symbology tab.
- Choose Features > Single symbol.
- Click on the Symbol box. in the Symbol Selector window, click on Style References.
- Scroll down to find and check the box next to ColorBrewer. Click on Set as Default List too.
- Donezo !
If you're not completely wedded to ArcGIS, QGIS has really nice custom color ramp capabilities for both vector and raster.
