Dear all,

I want to use a colormap from bright blue, through white, and then to bright red for my contours as in the attached two figures. I checked the available colormaps in Tecplot but I didn't find it. However, I found many articles include the same colormap.

Please, I need your help!

Kind regards,

Tecplot has the 'diverging blue-red' and 'cmocean - balance' colormap but they not as vibrant as the ones attached.

Its fairly easy to create new colormaps by defining RGB values. Create a new *.map file in the colormaps folder in the installation, then refer to the example files (, and and tecplot scripting guide to create a colormap file.
