Fingerprint Classification Using Orientation Field Flow Curves

  title={Fingerprint Classification Using Orientation Field Flow Curves},
  author={Sarat C. Dass and Anil K. Jain},
Manual fingerprint classification proceeds by carefully inspecting the geometric characteristics of major ridge curves in a fingerprint image. We propose an automatic approach of identifying the geometric characteristics of ridges based on curves generated by the orientation field called orientation field flow curves (OFFCs). The geometric characteristics of OFFCs are analyzed by studying the isometric maps of tangent planes as a point traverses along the curve from one end to the other. The… CONTINUE READING
