Grid displays poorly pixelated with colormap in ArcView and ArcIMS, but displays correctly in Workstation


A grid displays correctly in ArcInfo Workstation with a colormap.

When the image is viewed in ArcView 3.x with the same colormap, it displays poorly and with a pixelated appearance.


The first index value in the Colormap file is not 0.

Solution or Workaround

Add the following line at the beginning of the colormap file to fix the problem:

0 0 0 0

The final results should appear something like:

# value red green blue
0 0 0 0
1 217 214 145
2 216 213 144
3 218 215 145
