Hello, i was wondering if anyone could help me get a thematic map to look better.

I have 10 classes of different agricultural field types and I want them all to stand out against each other.

I'm having a problem getting them to look just right.

I've had a go with colorbrewer using a qualitative colour scheme and although the results are okay there's just not enough contrast between colours to make them stand out.

Sequential and diverging also don't seem to give the correct effect.

Any ideas? I'm not too great with cartographic design.
