The chromaticities of the Chinese color system dataset are applied to eight color appearance models (CAMs). Models used are: CIELAB, Hunt, Nayatani, RLAB, LLAB, ZLAB, CIECAM97s, CIECAM02. Three color appearance attributes (lightness, chroma, and hue) are discussed for their uniformity, in terms of the constant perceptual nature of the Chinese color system dataset. The results show that no particular model can excel at all metrics. Comparison can lead to the conclusion that Chinese color system appearance scales can be predicted only slightly poorer than Munsell appearance scales using the eight CAMs.
