Users wanting a more user-friendly version of the ColorBrewer colorschemes can try my submission, which is available here:
http://www.mathworks.com/matlabcentral/fileexchange/45208

Rather than simply providing the data, it actually provides a function that can be used like any other standard colormap function in MATLAB ("hsv","jet","cool","hot","gray","bone",...).

For simple usage it requires only the map length and scheme name to define a colormap. The user can also set a default colorscheme and it can then be called exactly like any other MATLAB colormap function (i.e. a drop-in replacement). For colormaps larger than those defined by the original ColorBrewer data, it interpolates -all- of the ColorBrewer defined nodes for that colorscheme (not just the ones from the largest pre-defined colormap) to closer match the original ColorBrewer colormaps. Keeping all of the data in just one M-file means no file-clutter either!

Importantly my submission does NOT include any of the ColorBrewer data: these must be downloaded separately as an excel spreadsheet and are merged into the main M-file using a helper function (it is easy, and instructions are included!). The Color Brewer data are copyright under an Apache license:

Excellent! Easy to use as well.

As much as I like the idea, the implementation and the help could use some repair. It is not terribly friendly. It took me some time to figure out how to call it. I had to edit the code just to figure out the options, and to see that it is case sensitive, etc.

But once you figure out how to run the code, it should be useful. If you don't use it terribly often though, you may find yourself going through those explorations every time you need it.
