|This is the talk page for discussing improvements to the CIECAM02 article.|
|CIECAM02 was a Engineering and technology good articles nominee, but did not meet the good article criteria at the time. There are suggestions below for improving the article. Once these issues have been addressed, the article can be renominated. Editors may also seek a reassessment of the decision if they believe there was a mistake.|

This article does not meet the Good Article criteria. For starters, it is far too technical and not easy to understand (heck! I have a Ph.D. and I'm having trouble understanding all this!). Article sections are not organized very well, and most of the latter half of the article is just a collection of equations and graphs with a very poor description of how these equations connect together into the overall system. The article's text also doesn't really seem to point out much of the model's use, other than that it's used by Windows Vista's color system.
I also raise questions that the article meets the verifiability criterion (#2), as there are only six inline citations used by the article. Also, please move the non-inline-citations to a 'further reading' section, or convert them to inline citations. The only thing present in the reference section should be inline citations.
L, M, S vs R, G, B
I wonder whether it’s a good idea to use the symbols L, M, S in describing colors in CAT02 and Hunt-Pointer-Estévez space, instead of R, G, and B. The latter seem to be pretty entrenched in the literature I see, including the draft of the CIECAM02 spec, the 6th edition of Hunt’s The Reproduction of Colour, and the second edition of Fairchilds Color Appearance Models. Additionally, using L for the long-wavelength cone response makes for easy confusion between Lw and LW, which would be seemingly much reduced if the former was called Rw instead.

These slides provide a fairly good overview of CIECAM02: http://www.cis.rit.edu/fairchild/PDFs/AppearanceLec.pdf
And the equations are also listed in this paper: http://www.polybytes.com/misc/Meet_CIECAM02.pdf
- Definitely add good sources that aren’t already mentioned! A agree that Mark Fairchild’s lecture slides are great. Notice they’re linked at the bottom of the “references” section. I’ve also found that other paper useful in the past. Go ahead and put it into the article. –jacobolus (t) 19:47, 2 July 2012 (UTC)
