Smoothing fingerprint ridge orientation involves a principal discrepancy. Too little smoothing can result in noisy orientation fields (OF), too much smoothing will harm high curvature areas, especially singular points (SP). In this paper we present a fingerprint ridge orientation model based on Legendre polynomials. The motivation for the proposed method can be found by analysing the almost exclusively used method in literature for orientation smoothing, proposed by Witkin and Kass (1987) more… Expand
