Abstract

The goal is to construct a simple model relating the conceptually defined Munsell color space to a physical representation of the relationship among the reflectance spectra obtained from the color chips comprising the Munsell color atlas. In the model both the Munsell conceptual system and the transformed reflectance spectra are shown to be well represented in Euclidean space, and the two spaces are related by a simple linear transformation. A practical implication is that the method allows one to compare the location of an empirical reflectance spectrum with the aiming point in the conceptual structure.
