NAME

       gmtcolors - Explanation of color codes in GMT

DESCRIPTION

       Colors  can  be specified in GMT as arguments to commands, generally as
       part of the -G or -W options to select polygon  fill  or  outline  pen.
       Colors  are  also  used  in color pallette tables (cpt files) that help
       convert numerical values to colors.
       GMT allows several ways to represent a color:

       Colorname
              Specify one of the named  colors  below.  All  names  are  case-
              insensitive.

       R/G/B  Specify  Red, Green, and Blue levels. Each value is separated by
              a slash and is in the range from 0 (dark) to 255 (light).   This
              representation is used to color monitors.

       Specify Red, Green, and Blue levels in the way that it is done in HTML.
       Use two characters for
              each  color channel, ranging from 00 (dark) to FF (light). Upper
              and lower case are allowed.

       Graylevel
              For shades of gray, R = G = B, and only one number needs  to  be
              used.   This  representation  is  popular  with  black and white
              printers.

       H-S-V  Specify Hue in the  range  0  to  360  (degrees),  S  saturation
              between  0  (not saturated) and 1 (fully saturated), and value V
              between 0 (dark) and 1 (light). Number are separated by hyphens.
              This representation can be helpful when hue varies a lot.

       C/M/Y/K
              Specify  Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, and blacK. Each number is in the
              range  from  0  (no  paint)  to   1   (maximum   paint).    This
              representation is used by most color printers.
