How to make a a certain range with different color in colorbar

31 views (last 30 days)
I created a a contour plot and I would like to make the range between -50 and 0 different than the range 0 and 50 as below. Anway to help please
[X,Y] = meshgrid(10:5:80,0:1:20);
Z = f([X(:), Y(:)]);
Z1 = reshape(Z,[21,15]);
colormap hsv
xlabel('\gamma (%)')
ylabel('\lambda (%)')
zlabel('m^{*}_{NPV} ($B)')

Thanks Sudheer, I want exactly what I have with additional variation between 0 and 50. The range is very small which I’m struggling to present.

The above function requires that the positions be defined in relative terms, 0 to 1, rather than in absolute terms. You would have to decide ahead of time what your caxis() is going to be, and use proportional positions through that range,
relative_position = (data_x - min_to_map)./(max_to_map - min_to_map)

levels = [-700 -600 -500 -400 -300 -200 -100 -50 -40 -30 -20 -10 0 10 20 30 40 50 100 200 300];
[a,b] = contourf(X, Y, Z1, levels);
This will not in itself create new colormap entries for the various levels, but it will outline them more clearly.
To create new colormap entries, you have to follow the strategy I outlined above, of creating a colormap with replicated slots.
