The Massey Martin Scale is a group of ten colors of a hand. Using an RGB eyedropper, 48 samples were taken of each hand picture. The RGB data was collected and then an average was calculated. This data shows the accuracy of using an RGB eyedropper to gauge skin tone. It shows how much more accurate and bias-free the use of an RGB eyedropper is than the Massey Martin Scale which is the current standard.


Steps to reproduce

Display the Massey Martin Scale on a color-calibrated computer monitor. Use an RGB eyedropper to record RGB data of each individual hand.
