Title: Fingerprint Images
Description: Examples of fingerprint images (left column) on which a colored-coded quality map has been superimposed (right column). The color coding provides forensic examiners with a means of marking the quality of the data that can obtained from the friction ridge details seen in the images. Blue areas are excellent, green are satisfactory, yellow may potentially contain false or missed features, and red have no value at all.
