#' Sequential, diverging and qualitative colour scales from colorbrewer.org
#'
#' ColorBrewer provides sequential, diverging and qualitative colour schemes
#' which are particularly suited and tested to display discrete values (levels
#' of a factor) on a map. ggplot2 can use those colours in discrete scales. It
#' also allows to smoothly interpolate 6 colours from any palette to a
#' continuous scale (6 colours per palette gives nice gradients; more results in
#' more saturated colours which do not look as good). However, the original
#' colour schemes (particularly the qualitative ones) were not intended for this
#' and the perceptual result is left to the appreciation of the user.
#' See \url{http://colorbrewer2.org} for more information.

#' @section Palettes:
#' The following palettes are available for use with these scales:
#' \describe{
#' \item{Diverging}{BrBG, PiYG, PRGn, PuOr, RdBu, RdGy, RdYlBu, RdYlGn, Spectral}
#' \item{Qualitative}{Accent, Dark2, Paired, Pastel1, Pastel2, Set1, Set2, Set3}
#' \item{Sequential}{Blues, BuGn, BuPu, GnBu, Greens, Greys, Oranges,
#' OrRd, PuBu, PuBuGn, PuRd, Purples, RdPu, Reds, YlGn, YlGnBu, YlOrBr, YlOrRd}
