All Rmetrics' color sets are named as `fooPalette`

where the
prefix `foo`

denotes the name of the underlying color set.

**R's Contiguous Color Palettes:**

Palettes for `n`

contiguous colors are implemented in the
`grDevices`

package. To be conform with Rmetrics' naming
convention for color palettes we have build a wrapper around the
underlying functions. These are the `rainbowPalette`

,
`heatPalette`

, `terrainPalette`

, `topoPalette`

, and the
`cmPalette`

.
Conceptually, all of these functions actually use (parts of) a line
cut out of the 3-dimensional color space, parametrized by the function
`hsv(h,s,v,gamma)`

, where `gamma=1`

for the `fooPalette`

function, and hence, equispaced hues in RGB space tend to cluster at
the red, green and blue primaries. Some applications such as contouring
require a palette of colors which do not wrap around to give a final
color close to the starting one. To pass additional arguments to the
underlying functions we refer to consult `help(rainbow)`

.
With rainbow, the parameters start and end can be used to specify
particular subranges of hues. Synonyme function calls are
`rainbow`

, `heat.colors`

,`terrain.colors`

,
`topo.colors`

, and the `cm.colors`

.

**R's Gamma-Corrected Gray Palette:**

The function `grayPalette`

chooses a series of `n`

gamma-corrected gray levels. The range of the gray levels can be
optionally monitored through the `...`

arguments, for
details `help(gray.colors)`

, which is a synonyme function call
in the `grDevices`

package.

**Tim's Matlab like Color Palette:**

The function `timPalette`

creates a color set ranging from blue
to red, and passes through the colors cyan, yellow, and orange. It
comes from the Matlab software, originally used in fluid dynamics
simulations. The function here is a copy from R's contributed package
`fields`

doing a spline interpolation on `n=64`

color points.

**Color Ramp Palettes:**

The function `rampPalette`

creates several color ramps. The
function is implemented from Tim Keitt's contributed R package
`colorRamps`

.
Supported through the argument `name`

are the following color
ramps: `"blue2red"`

, `"green2red"`

, `"blue2green"`

,
`"purple2green"`

, `"blue2yellow"`

, `"cyan2magenta"`

.

**Color Brewer Palettes:**

The functions `seqPalette`

, `divPalette`

, and
`qualiPalette`

create color sets according to R's
contributed `RColorBrewer`

package. The first letter in the
function name denotes the type of the color set: "s" for
sequential palettes, 'd" for diverging palettes, and "q" for
qualitative palettes.

*Sequential palettes* are suited to ordered data that progress
from low to high. Lightness steps dominate the look of these schemes,
with light colors for low data values to dark colors for high data
values. The sequential palettes names are:
Blues, BuGn, BuPu, GnBu, Greens, Greys, Oranges, OrRd, PuBu,
PuBuGn, PuRd, Purples, RdPu, Reds, YlGn, YlGnBu, YlOrBr, YlOrRd.

*Diverging palettes* put equal emphasis on mid-range critical values
and extremes at both ends of the data range. The critical class or
break in the middle of the legend is emphasized with light colors
and low and high extremes are emphasized with dark colors that have
contrasting hues.
The diverging palettes names are:
BrBG, PiYG, PRGn, PuOr, RdBu, RdGy, RdYlBu, RdYlGn, Spectral.

*Qualitative palettes* do not imply magnitude differences between
legend classes, and hues are used to create the primary visual
differences between classes. Qualitative schemes are best suited to
representing nominal or categorical data.
The qualitative palettes names are:
Accent, Dark2, Paired, Pastel1, Pastel2, Set1, Set2, Set3.

In contrast to the original color brewer palettes, the palettes here
are created by spline interpolation from the color variation with
the most different values, i.e for the sequential palettes these
are 9 values, for the diverging palettes these are 11 values, and
for the qualitative palettes these are between 8 and 12 values
dependeing on the color set.

**Graph Color Palettes:**

The function `perfanPalette`

creates color sets inspired
by R's cotributed package `Performance Analytics`

.
These color palettes have been designed to create readable,
comparable line and bar graphs with specific objectives.

*Focused Color Palettes:* Color sets designed to provide focus to
the data graphed as the first element. This palette is best used when
there is clearly an important data set for the viewer to focus on,
with the remaining data being secondary, tertiary, etc. Later elements
graphed in diminishing values of gray.

*Monchrome Color Palettes:* These include color sets for monochrome
color displays.

returns a character string of color strings.

The palettes are wrapper functions provided in several contributed R packages. These include:

Cynthia Brewer and Mark Harrower for the brewer palettes,

Peter Carl and Brian G. Peterson for the "PerformanceAnalytics" package,

Tim Keitt for the "colorRamps" package,

Ross Ihaka for the "colorspace" package,

Tomas Aragon for the "epitools" package,

Doug Nychka for the "fields" package,

Erich Neuwirth for the "RColorBrewer" package.

Additional undocumented hidden functions:

`.asRGB` | Converts any R color to RGB (red/green/blue), |

`.chcode` | Changes from one to another number system, |

`.hex.to.dec` | Converts heximal numbers do decimal numbers, |

`.dec.to.hex` | Converts decimal numbers do heximal numbers. |
