RColorBrewer_colors: RColorBrewer color Ramp Palette

Description Usage Arguments Value References Examples

Description

Functions for getting the colors of RColorBrewer (i.e.: brewer.pal) without the limitation of only 9/11 color values, based on colorRampPalette.

For sequential palettes this is not essential since we have viridis. But for diverging palettes this is quit essential.

The sequential palettes names are Blues BuGn BuPu GnBu Greens Greys Oranges OrRd PuBu PuBuGn PuRd Purples RdPu Reds YlGn YlGnBu YlOrBr YlOrRd

The diverging palettes are BrBG PiYG PRGn PuOr RdBu RdGy RdYlBu RdYlGn Spectral And also cool_warm. The cool_warm palette is based on Kenneth Moreland's proposal (see ref). It goes from blue (cool) to ref (warm), based on well thought-out design elements.
