In this paper, the authors introduced some new techniques to extract the palmprint features based on fractal codes and fractal dimension. Four new techniques based on fractal, namely FDFC (Fractal Dimension from Fractal Codes), FDIFC (Fractal Dimension Image from Fractal Code), DIFC (Distance Image from Fractal Code), and AIFC (Angle Image from Fractal Code) are proposed.. The main idea of these methods is the forming palmprint image representation by using fractal code parameters. There are three parameters of fractal codes are used namely position of range block, position of domain block, and size of range block. Those methods have been applied for palmprint verification system.
