7 December 1978 Adaptive Digital Enhancement Of Latent Fingerprints
Author Affiliations +
An adaptive technique for providing effective enhancement of latent fingerprints is presented. The adaptive technique is described and examples are shown, including an enhanced print prepared for a trial exhibit. Image preprocessing considerations are discussed for obtaining optimal enhancement. Results of the adaptive technique are compared to those obtained with the conventional Fourier filtering enhancement.
