Dictionary of Color Terms

At the heart of the NBS/ISCC system is a standardized set of color terms. The color space is sliced into fifteen hues such as “yellow”, “greenish yellow”, “yellowish green”, and so forth. Within each slice, degrees of saturation and brightness are specified by modifiers such as “vivid”, “dark”, and “pale”.

The reference colors of the standardized language are called centroid colors. Because of non-linearities in our visual apparatus and irregularities in our natural-language system of color names, not every hue has the full complement of modifiers. There are in fact only 267 centroid colors.

Albert Munsell initially created the Munsell color model in 1898. The Munsell Book of Color was published in 1929 and revised by the Optical Society of America in 1943.

David A. Mundie converted the NBS Centroid colors from Munsell to CIE XYZ, then converted to Mac QuickDraw RGB.

John Foster reconverted supplied Munsell values via Munsell software downloaded from www.gretagmacbeth.com directly to RGB, and tried to resolve some duplicates. Some of these don’t even look right, because some of the bright colors are on the dark fringes with less chroma and are not centered and high up on the hue curves. Many of the original Munsell values (noted) are outside the RGB gamut, and have been adjusted to the closest brightest RGB value by changing chroma until 0 or 255 is reached in one out of bounds RGB component.
