A Matlab code is written for fingerprint enhancement and lost minutiae reconstruction for bad quality fingerprint images.
How to run??
1. Unzip and place the Enhancements folder in the path of Matlab, add the Dataset and contents to the path by right clicking on it.
2. Run Finger_Enhance.m and select a degraded fingerprint from the dataset
3. Compare figure1 with figure5
I have used the availabe Kovesi functions and others to complete this code.
The code is loosely based on the paper below, please cite and give credit to authors:
 Hong, Lin, Yifei Wan, and Anil Jain. "Fingerprint image enhancement: algorithm and performance evaluation." Pattern Analysis and Machine Intelligence, IEEE Transactions on 20.8 (1998): 777-789.
