Color Ordering Systems

There are a variety of color ordering systems of which we will consider two. The Munsell Color systems and the CIE Colorimetric system comprise two color ordering systems which are based on psychophysical measurements. As such these two systems can be considered to be approximations to a perceptual color metric space.
