This invention relates to a method for obtaining a discrete, best-fit continuum color space using a two-pass process for ascertaining the closest one of a set of spatially distributed points to an arbitrary point. The coordinates of each point in the set and the arbitrary point are known a priori. The two-pass process permits (a) the sorting of points (coarse stage), and (b) executing a fast path to the minimal distance point (fine stage).
