Introduction

Crameri (2018) offers carefully chosen schemes, ready for mapping data, with colours that are:

  • Perceptually uniform,
  • Perceptually ordered,
  • Colour vision deficiency friendly,
  • Readable as black and white print,
  • Citable & reproducible.

All the scales presented in Crameri (2021) are implemented here, for use with base R graphics or ggplot2.
