Add appropriate colour ramps to results of analyses

One of the many features I like a lot in GRASS is that an appropriate colour ramp is automatically applied to the results of analyses, when feasible and appropriate (e.g. greyscale for aspect, rainbow for slope, etc.).
Adding this to Processing seems simple, and it would add much to the readability of results.

Do you know that you can set the rendering to use for the outputs of Processing? You can set a global one, and also a specific one for each algorithm.

Do you mean adding some symbology by default (now by defaut it does nothing)?

Yes, exactly.

Hmm, how we can determine when and which colorramp to apply?

#5 Updated by Paolo Cavallini over 1 year ago

The idea is to add the capability of adding one default ramp for each analysis, then decide which one is more appropriate for it.

See how GRASS does it: greyscale for aspect, coloured for slope, etc.

Also useful for the recently added shortest path algs.
