Abstract

NIST Special Database 14 is being distributed for use in development and testing of automated fingerprint classification and matchingsystems on a set of images which approximate a natural horizontal distribution of the National Crime Information Center (NCIC) fingerprintclasses and were compressed using an implementation of the wavelet scalar quantization (WSQ) compression specification.The database consists of three CD-ROM disks, each containing 9,000 image pairs andrequiring approximately 670 megabytes of storage compressed and 11.5gigabytes uncompressed (18.0:1 average compression ratio).
