Color scheme example

The bar chart shows yearly average temperatures for a 20-year period. Not only the bar heights reflect the temperature values but also the bar colors. The Min-avg-max color scheme is applied. It represents values from Min to average with a gradient transition from green to black. Items representing values from average to Max are colored in a gradient transition from black to red.
