ICD [ink coverage density]

Ink Coverage Density

Color density on a print job: FitPlot is able to show / record an index [ICD] of the ink coverage for each page, so you can count on a reliable value to get a real price of your prints.
This index represent the amount of ink used per square unit, so that

(ICD x ink cost per sq. unit + paper cost per sq. unit) x printed surface = Price
