It seems that the default color palettes are stored in the https://github.com/UV-CDAT/uvcdat/blob/master/Packages/vcs/Share/initial.attributes file, which contains color palettes as well as a bunch of other projection and other initialization info.. I wonder if there are also color palettes buried in the VTK installation directories too?

From a user's perspective (me) it would be nice if all the color palettes were contained in a single subdirectory, and adding a new palette file (assuming it follows standard format) to this directory will then be picked up upon the next initialization of UV-CDAT.

I'd be happy to work on this as a 2.2+ (2015+) milestone item, but would need some guidance from @doutriaux1 to kick things off
