The Munsell hue circle would be a perfect circle in a visually perfect color space.
From measured reflectance values, the Spectramagic software (available with our spectrophotometer) provided different colour parameters, including Munsell hue, value, and chroma.
We calculated the mean Munsell hue of a given chart from the average Munsell hues measured in its chips, using the appropriate partition of Munsell hue (10R = 10, 2.
plane was averaged from the measured chromatic coordinates of the colour chips with the same Munsell hue and chroma notation (that is, the locus refers to a central Munsell value).
Figure 2 shows the average and range of Munsell hue from the spectrophotometric measurements we performed on the chips of our 6 colour charts, against the tabulated Munsell hue notation provided by the charts.
2 that for JAPAN2001 the Munsell hue ranges overlap in some adjacent charts, such as 2.
The old soil-colour charts had a worse conformity between measured and tabulated Munsell hue than did the new ones (Fig.
As can be seen, the distribution of colours is quite regular, the lines of constant Munsell hue and contours of constant Munsell chroma defining a regularly spaced spider web (Melville and Atkinson 1985).
There are 85 Munsell hues selected from a complete hue circle divided between four boxes.
Example hue labels for ten Munsell hues are listed below the hue axis: 5R, 5YR, 5Y, 5GY, etc.
The test is conducted at 50cm and comprises 16 Munsell hues selected from an incomplete circle, mounted onto chips (Figure 3 and Figure 4).
