NIST Special Database 29 is being distributed for use in development and testing fingerprint matching systems. The data consists of 216 ten-print fingerprint card pairs with both the rolled and plains (from a bottom of the fingerprint card) scanned at 19.7 pixels per mm. The cards are segmented into the 10 rolled prints and the 4 groupings of plain prints (left fingers, right fingers, left thumb, and right thumb) and stored in ANSI/NIST formatted files. Fingerprint classification information is included in the formatted files. All images are compressed using WSQ compression at approximately 15:1. The segmented images can be rejoined to create the original card layout if the user preferred to segment it differently.

Of the 2160 rolled fingerprint images, 757 are the same fingerprints used in NIST Special Database 4 and historical links are given to those fingerprints.

The database is contained on one CDROM with supporting software to access the image data.

System Requirements: CDROM drive that reads an ISO-9660 formatted CDROM and ability to compile C source code. The source code was developed using the GNU project's gcc compiler and gmake utility (www.gnu.org), and has been tested under LINUX, SGI Irix, and under Windows NT using the free Cygwin library and associated tools (sources.rehat.com/cygwin).
