Looking for data for cone cell responsivity (color vision)

  1. Aug 11, 2014 #1
    1) I am looking for numerical data behind plots like this one.

    2) Also, any information on the experiments the data comes from would be helpful. Are cone cells directly measured, or does it involve a human matching colors to a pure color light source?

    3) Will I be able to write a function that maps wavelengths to RGB values using said data?

    4) What are some good primary sources in this field?

    Thank you for answering any of these or just commenting!

    EDIT: The link above actually links to a PDF with the data, so never mind that part of the question.
    EDIT2: I found this great resource of data on color vision: http://www.cvrl.org/
