Winner! Sandy Color Scheme

Winner! Sandy Color Scheme

Our frivolous and capricious judges have spoken, and the winner of the Tinderbox color scheme context is Jonathan David Leavitt. Dr. Leavitt gets this lovely Florentine journal, and we all get look at his color scheme, Sandy, now in the Tinderbox Public File Exchange.

Sandy adds a progression of eight new colors, nicely arrayed in tone from light to dark but also varying pleasantly in hue. This is a handy way to provide nearly-continuous feedback for urgency or importance.

I especially like the way these colors work along with the darken colors in outlines preference, setting up a legible progression in the outline while also working smoothly and with variety on the map.
