The Munsell hue circle would be a perfect circle in a visually perfect color space.
In each set, five distractor chips were chosen from the same Munsell hue designation as the target chip, two distractors were chosen from the two immediately preceding hue pages and two from the two immediately following hue pages.
From measured reflectance values, the Spectramagic software (available with our spectrophotometer) provided different colour parameters, including Munsell hue, value, and chroma.
The conformity between measured colour and Munsell hue, value, and chroma notation shown below each chip was first analysed.
Each point on the [a.sup.*][b.sup.*] 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).
Specifically, for the 10 soil samples the average standard deviation in our visual judgements was between 0.52 and 0.64 for Munsell value and chroma, and between 1.28 and 1.39 for Munsell hue.
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 2.5YR and 10R or 10R and 7.5R.
The old soil-colour charts had a worse conformity between measured and tabulated Munsell hue than did the new ones (Fig.
There are 85 Munsell hues selected from a complete hue circle divided between four boxes.
The test is conducted at 50cm and comprises 16 Munsell hues selected from an incomplete circle, mounted onto chips (Figure 3 and Figure 4).
