Summary

The viridis_white colormap is a modification of the Viridis colormap that was introduced in Matplotlib in 2015. In viridis_white, the yellowish sequence is replaced by a white sequence. It allows some additional flexibility when it comes to using a colormap on a white background.

The viridis_white colormap is based on the following Python implementation: https://docs.obspy.org/packages/autogen/obspy.imaging.cm.html
