    “Instead of color theory
    site emphasizes nature of
    data represented”

    .

    Can you elaborate a little on the above ?
    I’m not seeing the data emphasis.

    Color theory approach roots for colors that go well together. Like opposite colors on wheel (red-green, blue-yellow).

    Colorbrewer’s task is not to look cute, but to make data legible. For example default is “sequential data” and schemes are optimized to show progress from low value to high value in clearly defined steps. So it will not offer opposite colors, but those that follow each other in intensity.
