Abstract:

The research described herein involves color calibration of a CRT, a color discrimination study, and a color-coding system using Synthetic Aperture Radar SAR imagery. The results of the color calibration effort showed that, with appropriate regression coefficients, color output, both on a CRT and on film could be predicted. The color discrimination study showed that color discrimination is poorest for red colors. These data agree with our previous studies on color matching and discrimination, and we recommend caution when using the UCS representation as the index of color difference. The radar imagery color-coding study found, as have other investigators, that black and white coding is superior to color coding. If imagery is to be color-coded, hue coding is better than hue-brightness coding.
