Benchmark plots

These benchmarks were primarily made with GCPy. Some benchmark plots created by GAMAP still remain because they have not been recreated in GCPy yet.

NOTES:

  1. Category and lumped species definitions are simple to adjust. Updating them requires only editing the json files.
  2. All plots created with GCPy have PDF bookmarks. If you do not see them in your browser try using a different browser (not Safari) or installing an Adobe Acrobat plug-in.
