If you use the p.map command, you can display sites with a color from the color
chart of your printer (eg, shinko or tectronics). You can print out the color
chart for your printer with the p.chart command. Each color has a number associated
with it, so in your p.map script you could specify a color in the following way:
This would create a lime green diamond. You cannot choose a number for a color
in the d.points or d.sites command. You can, however, use it for any component
of the p.map script that references a color.
Review the manual pages for p.colors, p.map, and p.chart. This color referencing
is very useful when creating a symbol for a legend. This insures that the color
for a category of your raster map will match its symbol in the legend. See the
article that Melissa Records wrote in GRASSCLIPPINGS, Vol. 5, No. 2, Summer 1991.
