Abstract: Latent fingerprint identification is a challenging task in criminal investigation due to the poor quality of ridge impressions and less region of interest on the fingerprint. In this paper, we propose a semi-automated latent fingerprint identification to markup fingerprint landmarks manually using the image enhancement filters which will improve the identification performance in lights-out mode. It uses the global and local adaptive binarization, and global minutia features with ISO/IEC 19794-2 standard fingerprint ...
