Color Resources


Wikipedia has several articles on color and color vision. Good starting points are at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Color_vision and http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Colorblindness.


http://ghr.nlm.nih.gov/condition=colorvisiondeficiency covers the genetic basis of color vision deficiency.


Color Professor J.L. Morton maintains an excellent site on all things color at http://www.colormatters.com.


Aubrey Jaffer's color pages include many examples of color name dictionaries at http://swiss.csail.mit.edu/~jaffer/Color/.


Aubrey Jaffer's site leads to John Foster's dictionary of the NBS/ISCC Centroid Color names at http://tx4.us/nbs-iscc.htm.  Color Decoder's color names use a modified version of John Foster's dictionary.  Download Color Decoder's NBS/ISCC dictionary here.


Color Decoder's SVG 1.0/CSS3 color name dictionary was derived from the SVG color keywords listed at http://www.w3.org/TR/css3-color/. Download Color Decoder's SVG 1.0/CSS3 dictionary here.


http://www.brucelindbloom.com/ explores the mathematics of colors and color spaces.
