Here's what I use: ColorFunction -> (If[# <= 0, Hue[0, 0, 0], Hue[- .83 * # + .67]]&) You may want just the else part of the If, which shades from dark blue (lowest) to bright pink (highest). As is, it makes the very lowest values black. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Daniel Reeves http://ai.eecs.umich.edu/people/dreeves/ --- \/ FROM Joerg Christoffers AT 01.05.23 02:05 (Yesterday) \/ --- > Dear NewsGroup ! > > I have a list of data.
