DiscretePalette(n, palette = NULL)



Number of colours to be generated.


Options are "alphabet", "alphabet2", "glasbey", "polychrome", and "stepped". Can be omitted and the function will use the one based on the requested n.


A vector of colors


These palettes are a much better default for data with many classes than the default ggplot2 palette.
