Abstract

The visualization of polarimetric data is often done by color mapping the linear parameters using the three channels in the HSV color space. Because this color space is not an accurate model of human color perception, the resulting visualization mixes the perceptual channels and contains nonuniformity. To the best of our knowledge, we present a new mapping strategy that reliably and accurately depicts reality by placing the polarization parameters directly into the perceptually uniform channels of CAM02-UCS. This mapping also ensures that regions of high polarization will be more visible, even when the measured irradiance is low.
