How to read the Data
We have decided to display our findings using a customized version of “false color” that uses the color spectrum to visualize the light’s falloff. Each discrete color represents one-quarter of the previous amount, conforming to the behavior of a traditional point-source doubling in distance and the Inverse Square Law.
We've included the calculated illuminance at 1 meter ("E") along with the regression coefficient to allow for calculation at any distance (in meters). The largest dimension and the distance to 5x that length are listed below the distribution method. Daylight balanced sources are denoted with a blue stripe, while tungsten sources show an orange stripe.
Results are sorted by highest to lowest "E" value and can be filtered out by color-temperature, category, or manufacturer.
