pixel colour In remote sensing, the colour of each pixel. Pixel colour is dependent on three parameters: the intensity, which is the brightness of the colour; the saturation, which is the perpendicular distance to the achromatic axis (the closer to the achromatic axis the more pastel the colour, the further away the more vivid the colour); and the hue. See also INTENSITY-HUE-SATURATION PROCESSING.
