Summary

In this chapter conclusions from the facts of the previous chapters are drawn by attempting to answer 13 question related to color scaling and uniform and regular color spaces. A defense of the effort of defining for elementaristic conditions a uniform color space is offered against opinions denying any validity of such efforts. An approximation of a uniform color space at the level of small color differences is shown as a counterpoint to the figure of the Nickerson–Newhall uniform color space in this chapter (Fig. 1-2). A research program is proposed in some detail to establish reliable, replicated data that can be used to determine the properties of uniform color spaces for a given viewing and surround situation at different levels of size of difference.
