Executive Summary

In this paper, the authors present an effective method for fingerprint classification using data mining approach. Initially, it generates a numeric code sequence for each fingerprint image based on the ridge flow patterns. Then for each class, a seed is selected by using a frequent itemsets generation technique. These seeds are subsequently used for clustering the fingerprint images. The proposed method was tested and evaluated in terms of several real-life datasets and a significant improvement in reducing the misclassification errors has been noticed in comparison to its other counterparts.
