212. Effect of Image Size and Compression on One-to-One Fingerprint Matching
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 7201
Topic: Biometrics
Published: 2/1/2005
Authors: Craig I Watson, Charles L. Wilson
Abstract: NIST has conducted testing of one-to-one fingerprint matching systems to evaluate the effect of image size and compression on the accuracy of the one-to-one matching process. Images from three live-scan fingerprint scanners collected by the Departm ...

215. Matching Performance for the US-Visit IDENT System Using Flat Fingerprints
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 7110
Topic: Biometrics
Published: 11/29/2004
Authors: Charles L. Wilson, Michael D Garris, Craig I Watson
Abstract: This report discusses the flat to flat matching performance of the US-VISIT fingerprint matching system. Both one-to-many matching used to detect duplicate visa enrollments and one-to-one matching used to verify the identity of the visa holder are d ...

216. Is the Urn Well-Mixed? Uncovering False Cofactor Homogeneity Assumption in Evaluation
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 7156
Topic: Biometrics
Published: 10/1/2004
Authors: Ross J Micheals, T E Boult
Abstract: Measuring system performance is conceptually straightforward; it is the interpretation of the results and their use as predictors of future performance that are the exceptional challenges in system evaluation and the experimentation in general. Good ...

220. Face Recognition using 3D Facial Shape and Color Map Information: Comparison and Combination
Topic: Biometrics
Published: 4/30/2004
Authors: Afzal A Godil, Sanford P Ressler, Patrick J Grother
Abstract: In this paper, we investigate the use of 3D surface geometry for face recognition and compare it to one based on color map information. The 3D surface and color map data are from the CAESAR anthropometric database. We find that the recognition perfor ...
