CARTOColors

Data-driven color schemes

Custom color schemes built on top of well-known standards for color use on maps, with next generation enhancements for the web and CARTO basemaps.

Sequential schemes

Variations in lightness make these schemes ideal for mapping orderable or numeric data that progress from low to high using colors that range from light to dark (or vice versa).
