MFworks employs a powerful set of color management windows that
allow users to enhance and visualize maps in a variety of ways. User
defined color sequences can be guided by the contents of the map or
at the discretion of the user.
The color management facility is one
feature within MFworks which accentuates visualization. Data values
can be assigned particular colors by simply selecting the legend
entries and choosing a color sequence. For example, this can be used
in flood zone areas, by assigning specific colors to all elevations
higher than an identified value. The colored areas would depict
zones where construction is permitted within the region.
The availability of millions of
colors empowers the user with advanced coloring flexibility.
A pop-up color menu has
been added to make it easier to change the color of a map zone, the
color of the drawing zone, and the end points of a color sequence.
The "Other..." item at the bottom of the pop-up menu can be used to
display the standard color picker dialog.
are also accessible from the legend of each map. Legend entries may
be individually controlled or sections can be defined and have a
color sequence applied to them.
A simple to use color sequencing
facility that gives the user control of image enhancement and
logical data association. Color sequences can be selected using one
of three paths through color space, and applied to data sequentially
or based on change in data values or areas.
CMY, RGB and HSL
The color management facilities
feature three color models to meet your needs. You can define color
using: Cyan, Magenta, and Yellow (CMY); Red, Green, and Blue (RGB);
or Hue, Saturation, and Lightness (HSL).
MFworks also allows you to control
map color schemes from the Script Window. This lets you create batch
file processes for making a large series of maps all conform to the
same color sequence.
