Since Asteroids was published (Gehrels 1979), there have been three taxonomic classification schemes developed and applied to the body of available color and albedo data (Tholen 1984; Barucci et al. 1987; Tedesco et al. 1989). Asteroid taxonomic classifications according to the first two of these schemes are reported in a table.
