Color Scene Analysis in the 1976 CIE (L*a*b*) Uniform Color Space
  DOI :  10.2352/CIC.1993.1.1.art00052  Published OnlineJanuary 1993

This paper describes a scene analysis method that detects object surfaces using color information. The proposed method operates in the 1976 CIE (L*,a*,b*) uniform color space and utilizes the Munsell color order system as a reference. The textured scene or object surfaces are identified by Julesz's conjecture. The technique presented in this paper was applied to several low contrast 580×700 color images of a city skyline taken in winter with 8 bits/pixel R, G, B specification.
