Wikipedia uses a normalized[disambiguation needed] set of color coordinate systems in the color Information Box (sample at right) and also in articles such as List of colors.

Color coordinate ranges are a matter of designer choice and there is no universal standard range for many color spaces (though some ranges may be prevalent). A box with all of the different possible coordinate ranges would be too large and confusing.

Therefore, Wikipedia has chosen standard ranges for each of the coordinate systems, so as to have consistent coordinates in all color articles. This article describes the chosen systems and also provides instructions for conversion to other ranges which might be needed by particular color environments.
