Color Printer Characterization Using a Computational Geometry Approach
  DOI :  10.2352/CIC.1997.5.1.art00019  Published OnlineJanuary 1997

We propose a method for the colorimetric characterization of a printer which can also be applied to any other type of digital image reproduction device. The method is based on a computational geometry approach. It uses a 3D triangulation technique to build a tetrahedral partition of the printer color gamut volume and it generates a surrounding structure enclosing the definition domain. The characterization provides the inverse transformation from the device-independent color space CIELAB to the device-dependent color space CMY, taking into account both colorimetric properties of the printer, and color gamut mapping.
