wacolors: Washington State Color Palettes

Description Usage Format Details Examples

Description

A collection of colorblind-friendly color palettes for various settings in the state of Washington. Colors were extracted from a set of photographs, and then combined to form a set of continuous and discrete palettes. Continuous palettes were designed to be perceptually uniform, while discrete palettes were chosen to maximize contrast at several different levels of overall brightness and saturation. Each palette has been evaluated to ensure colors are distinguishable by colorblind people.

Usage

1

Format

A list of character vectors containing the color palettes. Discrete palette vectors contain names for each color.

Details

Discrete palettes contain at most seven colors. Don't create graphics that use more than seven discrete colors. You can color a map with four. Anything more risks confusion. Consider differentiating through faceting or labels, instead.
