You could try using a real photographic test chart like the ColorCheckerSG,

My thinking is, not to use a test chart, but the existing photo library that a
photograher has on his hard-disk and let statistics do its work to compensate
for lack of full test-gamut in single photos.

You could photograph a spectroscope or other source of monochromatic light to
get the full extent of the gamut...but Graeme's right. You'd be much better off
creating your own personalized pleasing look rather than trying to
programmatically copy Nikon's.

I certainly disagree with that, as the programming needs to be done only once - and then it would work for any camera/setting/manufacturer. On the other hand, correcting single photos by hand to achieve the same goal, is absurd.
