Hey Fred,

I do not know if there is a standard, but all maps/forcast I have seen seems to use the same "overall" colour palet from cold to hot or calm to storm/hurricane. See for instance:

http://www.wunderground.com/global/Region/EU/Temperature.html
http://www.wetterzentrale.de/pics/Reurmett.html

as a few examples. Look at last link to find Topkarten, too (GFS Forecast)

I do not know anything about the exactly RGB-values; I have just tried to match the colour scheme in the best way

Regard,

Jan

Based on the above scripts and the colours in
http://www.wunderground.com/global/Region/EU/Temperature.html I made a script for every 2 degr.

In a photo-program I read the RGB values in the picture on the above site. Some formula's in Excel calculated the values in between (the picture has ranges of 5 degrees). I already added the C-degrees below zero. As soon as Tim fixed the problem remove the # before the lines and remove the F-part.

I used single lines in the script because I can see easily what the script is doing and I accept that it's a bit slower.

If the couountry boundaries are not clearly visible you can try to change the colour-style in the following way:
bas Background color 255-255-255 -
lan Land color 255-255-255 -
inl International Boundary 000-000-000 2
sta State-Province Boundary 000-000-000 2
cst Coastline 000-000-000 2
isl Islands 000-000-000 2
lak Lakes 000-000-000 2
riv Rivers 230-170-090 1
lat Lat/long graticule 206-222-225 1 solid
leg Legend block 256-256-256 1 Arial
stm Map time stamp 030-000-000 8 Lucida Console
etc.


Greetings

Fred
