Details

cbPalette15 is a Brewer palette. Because colours 4 and 7 are difficult to distinguish from colours 13 and 3, respectively, in individuals with tritanopia, cbPalette13 omits these colours (i.e. cbPalette13 <- cbPalette15[-c(4, 7)]).

Examples

data('cbPalette8')
plot.new()
plot.window(xlim = c(1, 16), ylim = c(0, 3))
text(1:8 * 2, 3, 1:8, col = cbPalette8)
points(1:8 * 2, rep(2, 8), col = cbPalette8, pch = 15)

data('cbPalette15')
text(1:15, 1, col = cbPalette15)
text(c(4, 7), 1, '[   ]')
points(1:15, rep(0, 15), col = cbPalette15, pch = 15)
