In this paper we proposed a new enhancement technique that is based on the integration of Decimation Free Directional responses of the Decimation Free Directional Filter Banks (DDFB), adaptive mean filtering and the eigen decomposition of the Hessian matrix. By decomposing the input fingerprint image into decimation free directional images, it is easy to… CONTINUE READING
