Alternative schemes showed Ramping color swatches using the Pantone spring 2013 collection colors as the ramp milestones. So far we've been laying out a linear ramp. How about a circular one?
Luckily How to create a heatmap doughnut chart could be used to layout both the scheme and its ramp.
Using the previous techniques and libraries described in Ramping color swatches, Looking up color table, Alternative schemes, and Playing around with colors in VBA it becomes more or less a one liner to create the chart below - which shows the label sections, their underlying colors and a circular ramp between them.
So how about showing multiple columns.
This time we are going to use the last 3 years Pantone fashion colors, as defined here
and we get this.. we can see the tone changing over the past 3 years.
