Classification and Indexing Approaches for Identification
Part of the Kluwer International Series on Biometrics book series (KISB, volume 1)
As shown in Figure 1.6(a), in an identification system, the input is a query fingerprint, the system tries to answer the question: are there any fingerprints in the database, which resemble the query fingerprint? In this chapter, we are dealing with the identification problem. We present a comparison of two key approaches for fingerprint identification. These approaches are based on:
Classification followed by verification;
Indexing followed by verification.
