Arguments

n

integer determining number of colors to be generated

Details

darkColors is based on the Dark2 palette in RColorBrewer, therefore useful to describe qualitative features of the data.

seqColors is based on Blues and generates a gradient of blues, therefore useful to describe quantitative features of the data. seqColors2 behaves similarly, but it is based on OrRd (white-orange-red).

divColors is based on the RdBu pallete in RColorBrewer, therefore useful to describe quantitative features ranging on two extremes.
