An Engineering Model for Color Difference as a Function of Size.

Description: 

This work describes a first step towards the creation of an engineering model for the perception of color difference as a function of size. Our approach is to non-uniformly rescale CIELAB using data from crowdsourced experiments, such as those run on Amazon Mechanical Turk. In such experiments, the inevitable variations in viewing conditions reflect the environment many applications must run in. Our goal is to create a useful model for design applications where it is important to make colors distinct, but for which a small set of highly distinct colors is inadequate
