LRV - Light Reflectance Value

An LRV is a value given to a surface to denote the amount of light relfected and can be used to measure colour contrast between surfaces. These values have been determined with reference to the CIELAB colour measurement method.

The L co-ordinate represents lightness and extends from 0 (Black) to 100 (White) and has been used as a measure of light reflectance value.
