Colour for Presentation Graphics [link]Paper  abstract   bibtex   
Choosing a "good" set of colours for a graphical display is an important problem, but one which many data analysis practitioners are ill-equipped to solve. Most current graphics systems provide very little assistance in making good colour choices. Indeed, most systems require that a user specify their colours in ways which are closely related to the hardware representation of the colours rather than to the way we most naturally think about colour. This tends to encourage bad colour choices.
