Abstract:

A laboratory study was conducted in order to assess the relative value of panchromatic, full color, and three additive color separations as formats for projecting photographed images. Using artificial materials, more targets were detected and more detail resolved in the three separated images than either panchromatic or full color. Full color appears to aid in the detection of objects without increasing the ability to resolve detail within these objects. This study confirms the theoretical capability of additive color photography for contrast enhancement in terms of visual parameters relevant to photo-interpretation. Author
