Paper Abstract

Experiments have been carried out with color workstation technology to permit color-blind persons to maximize their ability to interpret imagery. Software has been developed allowing individuals to tune and store their own imagery interpretation color scales. Test subjects comprising one color-impaired group and one control group with normal sight were requested to tune their own scales for interpreting three weather satellite images. Some of the results of these studies are presented.
