Color images are made with
grdimage which takes the usual common options and a color map. It operates over grids or images. The next example shows how to create a color appropriate for the grid's z range, plot the image and add a color scale. We use here the
data keyword to tell the program to load the grid from a file. The
@ before the tut_relief.nc file name instructs GMT to download the file from its server on the first usage and save it in a cache dir. See the
GMT tuturial for more details about what the arguments mean.
using GMT topo = makecpt(color=:rainbow, range=(1000,5000,500), continuous=true); grdimage("@tut_relief.nc", shade=(azimuth=100, norm="e0.8"), proj=:Mercator, frame=:a, color=topo) colorbar!(pos=(outside=:TC,length=(12.5,0.6), horizontal=true, offset=(0,1.0)), region="@tut_relief.nc", color=topo, frame=(ylabel=:m,), show=true)
A global bathymetry
Make a map of the global bathymetry (automatically download it if needed) using the Winkel projection, add coast lines and a color bar
using GMT grdimage("@earth_relief_20m.grd", proj=:Winkel, colorbar=true, coast=true, show=true)
