How do I change the color of Density Grids?

The Density/Heat Layer, or Density Grid, is a tool used to identify areas of a point layer with both high and low concentrations of points. Creating a density grid adds a new layer to the map called Density. The Density layer is actually a grid layer with a color theme applied to it, so the colors can be customized using the Color Theme tool. The steps below will go over how to change the color scheme of the density grid, as well as do some custom formatting.

  1. To begin, you'll need a density grid already on the map. For steps on creating the density layer, you can follow this guide.
  2. Now that you have your density grid, right click on the Density layer and choose Make Working Layer.
  3. Choose Color Theme from the main toolbar.
  4. Click the Styles tab, the color theme for the density grid is shown.
  5. To cycle through the different color palettes, click the Next and Previous buttons.
  6. Once you find an appealing color scheme, click apply to apply it.
  7. In some color schemes, the Other category will turn solid white. You can change this to transparent by highlighting Other in the Choose a class list, clicking Style, and changing the Fill Style to None.
