What is Farnsworth–Munsell 100 Hue Color Vision Test?

The Farnsworth–Munsell 100 Hue Color Vision Test is an online tool that checks the human visual system usually used to test for color blindness of people.

Dean Farnsworth developed the system in the 1940s that tests the ability to isolate and arrange minute differences in various color targets with constant color value and chroma covering all the visual hues.

There are several variations of the test, one featuring 100 color hues and one featuring 15 color hues. Originally taken in an analog environment with physical hue tiles, the test is now from computer consoles.

Accuracy of color vision is particularly important for designers, photographers and colorists, who need perfect color vision to produce quality content.

How Farnsworth–Munsell 100 Hue Color Vision Test Works?

It contains four distinct rows of similar color hues, each containing 25 distinct hue variations.

Each color hue at the polar end of a row is fixed on serving as an anchor. Each hue tile between the anchors can be adjusted as the user sees fit.

The tiles are arranged in four rows based on color hue. In that order, the rows cover orange/magenta hues, yellow/green hues, blue/purple and purple/magenta hues.

The test is given on a black background to isolate and accentuate color hues, which are round and roughly an inch in diameter.

The derivative of the test is based on square hue tiles, which are also presented on a black background but can vary in different sizes based on your monitor, resolution of your system, zoom and a variety of other external settings and variables.

Users need to arrange all tiles according to the increasing order of hue and chroma.

Failures of user-arranged tiles are measured in a function of two factors contained within the test; either the number of instances that a tile is misplaced or the severity of a tile displacement (i.e., the distance between tile need to be placed where it was placed.).
