Abstract

The Munsell Soil Colour Chart (MSCC) is an important reference for many professionals in the area of soil analysis. Currently, the functionality to identify Munsell soil colours automatically from an image is only feasible in laboratories under controlled conditions. To support an appbased solution research on the most effective colour models and colour difference calculation techniques for the MSCC is undertaken. The effects of smartphone cameras on estimating Munsell colours and their associated colour correction technique are also evaluated for their effectiveness. According to our assessment, the current technologies and methods do not satisfy the overall requirements for automatically predicting Munsell soil colours in comparison the MSCC. The proposed methods we have analysed have returned promising results and will help inform other researchers to better understand and develop informed solutions. This study provides both researchers and developers with an insight into the best methods for automatically predicting Munsell soil colours. Future research is needed to improve the reliability of results under differing environmental conditions.
