ColorBrewer for Python
The API attempts to follow Color Brewer as closely as possible:
- All color systems are all available in the module namespace.
- Additionally, they are organized into three groups to be used depending on how you
want to steer the viewer to interpret the data:
sequential: ordered, with contrast peaking on either end; further subdivided into
divergent: ordered, with contrast peaking in the middle as well as either end.
qualitative: unordered, with contrast at every step, ideal for categorical data.
- The color systems offer their continuum broken into waypoints. All offer all breakdowns
between 3 and 9 color points; the
divergentsystems usually have entries for 3 through 11.
