Fingerprint registration is still a challenging problem for large-scale fingerprint identification system. In this paper, a new, fast, and efficient algorithm for the focal point localization is proposed. The focal point is a reliable reference point, which can replace a singular point such as core in fingerprint registration process. The advantages of the focal point over the singular point are its uniqueness and reliability under low quality fingerprint and partial fingerprint conditions. In… CONTINUE READING
