Having a flexible and expandable system of interconnecting modules which create device independent color image processing chains is a powerful tool for color science research and education. The objective of this research was to see if there existed a commercially available application which would provide the framework for such a system, learn that application, build a system of device independent imaging modules, and document the process so future developer's could easily expand the system. The Numerical Algorithms IRIS Explorer software proved to be the best fit for the system since it offered an intuitive user interface, a powerful set of default modules, and the capabilites for expansion through new module creation. With Explorer, a system of device independent color imaging modules were built, tested, and the module building process documented in this thesis meeting the objectives of the research.
