Abstract

This paper discusses methods in evaluating fingerprint image quality on a local level. Feature vectors covering directional strength, sinusoidal local ridge/valley pattern, ridge/valley uniformity and core occurrences are first extracted from fingerprint image sub-blocks. Each sub-block is then assigned a quality level through pattern classification. Three different classifiers are employed to compare each of its different effectiveness. Positive results have been obtained based on our database.
