Fingerprint classification is an important indexing method for any large scale fingerprint recognition system or database as a method for reducing the number of fingerprints that need to be searched. Fingerprints are generally classified into broad categories based on global features. This paper describes a new 2-layer fingerprint classifier that uses curve features and singularities. In the first layer, the fingerprint was classified into Henry classes based on some curve features of… CONTINUE READING
