Styling raster data

Turn off all the vector layers. In this section, we are going to focus on rendering raster data. Load into the map the SR_50M_alaska_nad and landcover layers. We will style these layers. The options for styling raster data include the following:

  • Multiband color: When you have three or more raster bands (for example, a satellite image), this option allows you to choose which bands are for the red, green, and blue channels
  • Paletted/Unique values: Colors discrete raster data (landcover classification, for example)
  • Singleband gray: Applies a black to white or white to black color ramp for continuous raster data (elevation data, for example)
  • Singleband pseudcolor: Will apply a color ramp to continuous raster data (elevation ...
