Dynamic & Static Colored Elevation
Currently the colored elevation option allows only static coloring based on (pre)defined .cpt files. This approach has various drawbacks.
A new approach with the following options would be much better:
- user can choose between two coloring modes. Static range: user defines min max elevation. Dynamic range: coloring is dynamically applied based on min max elevation values currently on screen.
- user can customize style by defining a simple color map/palette (wich is much easier to create or find online).
What do you think of this new approach?
Technically I think it's possible. I already programmed a little python script that interpolates color palettes based on min-max elevation ranges and creates custom .cpt files for it. In this comment @Menion says that dynamic coloring would require a completely new system. Any idea why this would be so hard?
