Can someone confirm that 'XYZ' is the same as the CIE chromaticity coordinates that are also sometimes refered to as 'xyY' in the literature? Or are these the CIE tristimulus values? It looks to me like the first case is true, but I would appreciate hearing from one of the people in the know. Thanks, Bryan
According to the referenced web page from ?convertColor (i.e.
http://www.brucelindbloom.com/), XYZ is not xyY, though the conversion
looks pretty simple.
