Fingerprint Minutiae Viewer (FpMV)
The Fingerprint Minutiae Viewer (FpMV) distribution is developed by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). The goal of this software is to provide researchers a tool to view a fingerprint image with minutiae points overlaid on top of the fingerprint. The minutiae detection is based on "mindtct" application from the NIST Biometric Image Software (NBIS). This software is written using C#.
