Perceptually uniform color spaces can be a useful tool for solving computer graphics color selection problems. However, before they can be used effectively some basic principles of tristimulus colorimetry must be understood and the color reproduction device on which they are to be used must be properly adjusted. The Munsell Book of Color and the Optical Society of America (OSA) Uniform Color Scale are two uniform color spaces which provide a useful way of organizing the colors of a digitally controlled color television monitor. The perceptual uniformity of these color spaces can be used to select color scales to encode the variations of parameters such as temperature or stress.

Bibliographical noteFunding Information:
This work benefited from discussions with several people at the Cornell University Program of Computer Graphics. In particular, Christopher Odgers stressed the importance of having the proper equipment to adjust a color television monitor, Richard Gallagher wrote the program used to generate Figures 14 and 15, Michael Schulman performed the structural analysis depicted in Figures 14 and 15, and Bruce Forbes helped draw Figure i0. Special thanks is extended to GTE Sylvania for help in measuring the colorimetric properties of our television monitors and to Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute for providing the data which defines the Munsell color system. The Cornell University Program of Computer Graphics is partially funded by the National Science Foundation.
