create suitable palette for choropleth map

I have an area featureclass with a status attribute with values from 1-5.

I want to create a BI map with a choropleth map of that feature class.

I am struggeling to create an appropriate color palette that would result in a legend with 5 entries. 1 = green, 2 = light green, 3 = yellow, 4 = orange, 5 = red.

When I use a predefined palette, i get 10 classes even though i only have 5 different values.

When I create a palette with uniform distribution and min value = 1, max value = 5, I also get 10 classes.

When I create a custom distribution, I can not assign colors to certain values. It is only possible to assign colors to an interval, so I would have to assign every value twice. And I am not free to choose the color i want.

 

Could any one suggest how to create such a choropleth map with a suitable legend/palette.

 

Thanks

Re: create suitable palette for choropleth map

One more thing: is it possible to have polygons in a choropleth map with no edge?

I see there is a standard white edge around each polygon which isn't very helpful especially for small polygons.

Re: create suitable palette for choropleth map

A solution that worked for me:

I have status from 0-5, i didn't consider 0 values.

I created a custom colour scheme with 6 distinct colours.
