Table I Tristimulus specifications (X, Y, Z) and trichromatic coefficients (x, y) of 15 Munsell Atlas colors computed from spectrophotometric data (1919) on the basis of the I.C.I. standard observer and coordinate system and for I.C.I. Illuminant C.

Table II Tristimulus specifications (X, Y, Z) and trichromatic coefficients (x, y) of the five principal Munsell colors taken from Table I, each set of tristimulus specifications being multiplied by a factor to make Y=0.2500.

Tables Icon

Table III Tristimulus specifications (X, Y, Z) and trichromatic coefficients (x, y) computed for 260 Munsell designations according to instructions by Professor Munsell for making a pigment color-solid. These computed specifications are based upon the five principal Munsell colors specified in Table II.
