CIECAM02 and Real-World Images – from Mars
  DOI :  10.2352/CIC.2006.14.1.art00007  Published OnlineJanuary 2006

A human observer has never stood on the surface of Mars, yet color images from Mars have been produced. The twin Mars Exploration Rovers (MERs) have been on the surface of Mars for over two (earth) years and have taken many 1000's of images. The MER Pancam can acquire calibrated multispectral images that can be processed to produce colorimetric “true-color” images of Mars. While these images are primarily intended to allow science – in particular geology – to be done, they can also be used to display the Martian scenes in roughly representative color. The Pancam images can be further processed using color appearance models to produce “true color appearance” images that should display the color appearance to humans. CIECAM02 is applied to the colorimetric true-color images to Martian scenes to simulate the true color appearance.
