NAME

r.colors.stddev - Set color rules based on stddev from a map's mean value.

KEYWORDS

raster, color table

SYNOPSIS

r.colors.stddev
r.colors.stddev help
r.colors.stddev [-bz] input=name [--verbose] [--quiet]

Flags:

-b
Color using standard deviation bands
-z
Force center at zero
--verbose
Verbose module output
--quiet
Quiet module output

Parameters:

input=name
Name of input raster map

DESCRIPTION

r.colors.stddev set raster map color rules based on standard deviations from a map's mean value, either as a continuous color gradient or in color bands per standard deviation (S.D.) from the mean.

With the color band option values less that 1 S.D. from the mean are colored green, within 1-2 S.D. are colored yellow, within 2-3 S.D. are colored red, and beyond 3 S.D. are colored black.

For a differences map there is an option to lock the center of the color table at zero. Values more than two S.D. below the mean will be colored blue; values below the mean but less than 2 S.D. away will transition to white, and above the mean the colors will simularly transition to full red at +2 S.D.

EXAMPLE

North Carolina sample dataset location:
g.region rast=elevation -p
r.colors.stddev elevation
