This research aims at finding the features that contribute to diagnose the illness as the malignant melanoma, based on the color information of images. We divide RGB space into 4096 pieces and choose the spaces including colors peculiar to malignant melanoma. By using these spaces, about 26% of images of melanoma could be taken out only by the color information. This is very useful to malignant melanoma distinction accuracy.
