CRAN status R-CMD-check


palr provides colour palettes for data, based on some well known remotely sensed data sets for sea ice concentration, sea surface temperature and chlorophyll-a. It includes function image_pal() to create the data used by the image() function as colours.

There are five main ways of working with palr palette functions, which have names like ice_pal(), chl_pal() and sst_pal() for ice, chlorophyll-a and sst respectively and mk_timePal for creating a time-mapped palette function.
