FingerPrint Application



05 Oct 2007 (Updated )

Capture the Minutiae from a fingerprint

| Watch this File

File Information

A fingerprint is made of a series of ridges and furrows on the surface of the finger. The uniqueness of a fingerprint can be determined by the pattern of ridges and furrows as well as the minutiae points. Minutiae points are local ridge characteristics that occur at either a ridge bifurcation or a ridge ending.

Thank you very much for your code
please send me the matching code in order to dealing with my data bank of fingerprint images, Also the code to handle with other types of images bmp,jpg,tiff,png,and any others.
I am also need that code to finish my researches about Fingerprints Recognitions
and verifications, I am doing my master in that field, I will be appreciated if you help me to find it if you please find it, also If its possible to have a contact with you to discuss that field and the problems which we met and how to overcome it.
Thanks very much.

when I run the program, following error occurred. can anybody help me to understand the problem here?

??? Error using ==> sub2ind at 56
Out of range subscript.

Error in ==> fingerprint_pravin at 105

Hello, I need Identify at least 7 minutiae that are consistent across the 4 samples from the same finger. Need to circle each in red on one fingerprint image and provide the (x,y) coordinates, angle and type of each, in a manner consistent with the ISO/IEC 19794-2 standard.

Can anyone help me with the code for above task..

In regarding to correct format for feature matrix in finger print recognition, I have a question.

I have 9 finger prints(for 3 persons) which I want to train my network, and I have 3 fingerprints for testing(each person one).

After preprocessing and post processing, I could successfully reach to 2 feature of each finger print which are:
Termination=[X Y angel]
Biorefication=[X1 Y1 Angel1 Angel2 Angel3]
both of the matices for each finger print have different row size.

As I told you I have 9 input, in another words, I have 9 inputs which either of them has 2 matrix which I explained above.

Now , I have no idea how I should put these feature in correct format to feed it into neural network?

I am very thankful in advance for your help.

11 Feb 2014 Lamia

hi, i changed the program so that it works with other images (it was many modifications and adaptation to do) if anyone wants the code let me a mail at lamia.gaoua@gmail.com and i will send u the code ;) Bon courage à tous!

10 Feb 2014 Soorej

Thanks for this code. But how to use it for other images. It is not working with other images.

05 Feb 2014 Lamia

hi everyone! to avoid the problem of "ZTerm=Z.*ROI';" I resized the image like the original image (200,200), you will have just the problem of orientation at the end...

05 Feb 2014 Lamia

hi, thank's for this code, but please tell me how to do if we have other images, it works only with yours, how to do to evoid erros like this: Subscripted assignment dimension mismatch.

Error in fingerprint (line 201)

thank's very much, please send me your answer at tbagrees@hotmail.fr

The code is running only on the image you used in your code. But for other images it is showing the errors like
??? Error using ==> sub2ind at 58
Out of range subscript.

Error in ==> fingerprint at 157

please help me about this...

thank you

Hi Florence,

Thanks for sharing this code.

Even i m getting the same error as mentioned by a person previously.


If I changed the last line to ZTerm=Z.*ROI; then it works by the ZTerm becomes zero matrix. It makes the program failure.

kindly help me on this .. it would be a great help.


19 Aug 2012 Kushagra Mittal

First of all, Thank You very much for the code. The code is perfect, except that a minor customization is needed for my project. I need a code which puts the given fingerprint in one of the five pre-defined categories: whorl, right, loop, left loop, arch and tented arch, based on their ridge patterns. Please send it. Thank You.

Thanks for the code, however i have a question how to insert code so it can detect fingerprint system automatically? Im using a built in fingersweep by acer aspire 4389. Any help i will appreciate the most.

heys everyone, i am conducting a project to make an optical mouse into a Fingerprint Scanner Optical Mouse. So, is this code viable for optical mouse itself to scan fingerprint?

i am just doing a basic project, need to get the optical mouse able to scan and capture the fingerprints.

i getting error in this program in Suppress extrema minutiae . using sub2ind i m getting error,index out of range. please give me solution as early as possible.

16 Feb 2009 madhu j

i am doing my final year project in fingerprint verification. i 've performed binarization and thinning. but thinning is taking more time.. so plz send me the code for thinning to my mail id. my mail id is shayam.jayaraman@gmail.com. also during the minutiae extraction lots of spurious minutiaes r detected. so plz help me to remove this also.. please help me... i am having marks for my project.. thanks in advance.. plzzzzzzzzz....

i need cmac(cerebellar model arithmetic computer) matlab code for fingerprint classification.can anyone help me?

04 Jan 2009 vijay kumar

Please add minutia matching code,
please I need code source for minutia matching
transform hough is eficase code
send the minutia match algorithm determines whether the two minutia sets are from the same finger or not. two steps: 1. Alignment stage 2. Match stage

25 Nov 2008 Adil

Great application.

cons: it resizes your images to a predetermined size in the GUI (looses aspect ratio).

No comments on code and bad docummentations.

I did not know how to use the validation application

In the fingerprint demo program, I am getting the following error.

If I changed the last line to ZTerm=Z.*ROI; then it works by the ZTerm becomes zero matrix. It makes the program failure.

Please help me.

hi, thanks for the code, could you please tell me which other fingerprint images (or database) that i can use with this code, or it only works for this image. because whenever i change the image it doesnot work

Please add minutia matching code.

19 Feb 2008 Leena Patil

Hello Florence ,

Code is working excellent,please add minutia matching algorithm,so it is more useful.

04 Jan 2008 John D

Code is not working on gray scale images and also it is not working on different size of images(eg. 256*256).

14 Nov 2007 Avinash Pokhriyal

no explanation file. No image enhancement techniques applied, otherwise it would have been excellent.

13 Nov 2007 hitesh shah

it need to include Enhancement algorithm to handle poor quality images.
