A multiresolution method for singular points detection in fingerprint images

  title={A multiresolution method for singular points detection in fingerprint images},
  author={Marius Tico and Pauli Kuosmanen},
The detection of the singular points (cores and deltas) is the most important task of the fingerprint image classification operation. We propose a new method of detection and localization of singular points in a fingerprint image. Dealing with a multiresolution representation of both the orientation field and the certainty level, the proposed method achieves a quite high precision in the localization of the singular points. A 2 x 2 pixels block at a certain resolution level is classified as… CONTINUE READING
