This is a nascent list of resources related to using color in visualizations. Many of these resources also include lists of references that are also very useful. If you have suggestions/additions to this list, please let me know.

The basics of color perception and how they relate to data visualization. Even though they are old, still very pertinent:

Describes different color tables for sequential, diverging, and qualitative data, along with a selection of appropriate palettes:
