Map coloring

Color the polygons of a map such that adjacent polygons have different colors

Usage
map_coloring(x, algorithm = "greedy", ncols = NA, minimize = FALSE, palette = NULL, contrast = 1)
Arguments
x
Either a SpatialPolygons(DataFrame) or an adjacency list. Also sf objects are supported if they can be coerced to SpatialPolygons(DataFrame)s.
algorithm
currently, only "greedy" is implemented.
ncols
number of colors. By default it is 8 when palette is undefined. Else, it is set to the length of palette
minimize
logical that determines whether algorithm will search for a minimal number of colors. If FALSE, the ncols colors will be picked by a random procedure.
palette
color palette.
contrast
vector of two numbers that determine the range that is used for sequential and diverging palettes (applicable when auto.palette.mapping=TRUE). Both numbers should be between 0 and 1. The first number determines where the palette begins, and the second number where it ends. For sequential palettes, 0 means the brightest color, and 1 the darkest color. For diverging palettes, 0 means the middle color, and 1 both extremes. If only one number is provided, this number is interpreted as the endpoint (with 0 taken as the start).
Value

If palette is defined, a vector of colors is returned, otherwise a vector of color indices.
