Step 5: Choose the axes for the color map.

Step 6: Choose the color scheme for the color map.

    
Specify a color to be used for missing data:
RGB colors here are specified with a hexadecimal code, where two characters
each specify the levels of red, green, and blue from 0 (hex 00) to 255 (hex FF).
