ArcMap Standard Palette

These are the standard colors used in ArcMap, along with their RGB and HTML color codes. Note that some of the darker colors are hard to read — I did not want to make the text white because it tends to distort the colors. To read the darker values, simply highlight the text with your cursor.

Tips:

  • If you are planning to use these colors for hardcopy map production, print this page as a reference — some of these colors look very different when they are printed.
  • If the text in the color boxes is difficult to read on screen in Windows, try turning on font smoothing: Control Panel>Display>Effects (or Plus)>Smooth edges of screen fonts
  • To specify a color using RGB values in ArcPlot, use RGB Rval Gval Bval in place of an ArcInfo symbol number. For example: polygons RGB 50 50 50. For more information, see "RGB color specification" in the ArcPlot help file.
