New Spectral Data for Skin Colours
  DOI :  10.2352/ISSN.2169-2629.2017.32.266  Published OnlineNovember 2016

Two experiments were conducted for collecting skin database at the Universities of Liverpool and Leeds (UK), and Zhejiang University (China). Overall, 235 subjects from 4 different skin groups (Caucasians, Chinese, South Asian and Dark) were recruited. Each was measured using 4 types of colour measuring methods (tele-spectroradiometer, spectrophotometer, digital camera and visual assessment) including 6 instruments and 2 sets of colour charts. The results from the former two types are summarised here. The results were analysed in terms of skin colour distribution, repeatability and inter-instrumental agreement between 4 skin groups in CIELAB coordinates and spectral domain.
