4.2. Set particle colorΒΆ

The Default color button determines the particle color for visualizing the trajectories.

Particles are plotted as small circles. Particle size determines the diameter of the circle in pixel.

To use a colorbar, select in the Combo box a variable archived in the Ichthyop output file you wish to visualize as a tri-color range. The :guilabel`Auto range` button will scan the values of the variable and suggest the following range : [mean - 2 * standard deviation; mean + 2 * standard deviation]. Do not forget to click on Apply settings for validating the changes of the color bar.

For taking off the color bar, select the :guilabel`None` item in the Combo box and click on :guilabel`Apply settings`. A click on :guilabel`Default color` button should also deactivate the color bar.
