Verifying Fingerprint Match by Local Correlation Methods
Most fingerprint matching algorithms are based on finding correspondences between minutiae in two fingerprints. In this paper the authors present a modification of minutiae matching method, which utilizes correlation scores between the local neighborhood areas of corresponding minutiae pairs and the edges that connect neighboring matched minutiae pairs. Minutiae based matching approach considers the overall minutiae distribution pattern between the two fingerprints. Neighborhood correlation score represents the local similarity between the matched pair of minutiae. Edge correlation score gives the resemblance of areas that is in between the two corresponding minutiae pairs.
