mgwr.utils.shift_colormap(cmap, start=0, midpoint=0.5, stop=1.0, name='shiftedcmap')[source]

Function to offset the “center” of a colormap. Useful for data with a negative min and positive max and you want the middle of the colormap’s dynamic range to be at zero

cmapThe matplotlib colormap to be altered
startOffset from lowest point in the colormap’s range.

Defaults to 0.0 (no lower ofset). Should be between 0.0 and midpoint.

midpointThe new center of the colormap. Defaults to

0.5 (no shift). Should be between 0.0 and 1.0. In general, this should be 1 - vmax/(vmax + abs(vmin)) For example if your data range from -15.0 to +5.0 and you want the center of the colormap at 0.0, midpoint should be set to 1 - 5/(5 + 15)) or 0.75

stopOffset from highets point in the colormap’s range.

Defaults to 1.0 (no upper ofset). Should be between midpoint and 1.0.

new_cmapA new colormap that has been shifted.
