Image description: A new set of publications from the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) could make it easier, faster, and most importantly, more reliable, for forensic examiners to match a set of fingerprints with those on file in any database, whether local, state or national.
The fingerprints on the right side of the image have been colored-coded to with a “quality map.” The colors provide forensic examiners with a means of marking the quality of the data that can obtained from the print. Blue areas are excellent, green are satisfactory, yellow may potentially contain false or missed features, and red have no value at all.
