[Matplotlib-users] Trying to reproduce plot with a certain colormap

Hi all,

I agree with Ben that it does not look like jet to me: the bright light 
blue seems to be missing. FWIW, "Spectral" (with a capital S) might be 
the closest colormap among the built-in ones in Matplotlib, but it is 
still more “pastel-ish” than Kris´ example.

Best,
Adrien
