I am struggling to understand the pygmt.makecpt() method in pygmt (https://www.pygmt.org/latest/api/generated/pygmt.makecpt.html). The command is
pygmt.makecpt(*, transparency=None, cmap=None, background=None, color_model=None, truncate=None, output=None, reverse=None, overrule_bg=None, no_bg=None, log=None, series=None, verbose=None, categorical=None, cyclic=None, continuous=None, kwargs )
I am able to understand few arguments such as transparency, background, etc. But the major commands such as cmap and color_model are elusive. I simply use the following simple commands to generate colormaps, but its difficult to make customized colorbars with these cpt.
gmt.makecpt(cmap="jet", series=[0, 1, 0.1],reverse=False, background='o')
If someone can help this by providing an example, this would be really helpful.
