Project description

Documentation available: [http://matplotlib.org/cmocean/](http://matplotlib.org/cmocean/).

We have a paper with guidelines to colormap selection for your application and a description of the cmocean colormaps: Thyng, K. M., Greene, C. A., Hetland, R. D., Zimmerle, H. M., & DiMarco, S. F. (2016). True colors of oceanography. Oceanography, 29(3), 10. link: [http://tos.org/oceanography/assets/docs/29-3_thyng.pdf](http://tos.org/oceanography/assets/docs/29-3_thyng.pdf)

Besides Python, the cmocean colormaps are also available:

To install: pip install cmocean

To install with Anaconda: conda install -c conda-forge cmocean

If you want to be able to use the plots submodule, you can instead install with:

pip install “cmocean[plots]”

which will also install viscm and colorspacious.
