NIST Special Database 14 is being distributed for use in development and testing of automated fingerprint classification and matching systems on a set of images which approximate a natural horizontal distribution of the National Crime Information Center (NCIC) fingerprint classes and were compressed using an implementation of the wavelet scalar quantization (WSQ) compression specification.
The database consists of three CD-ROM disks, each containing 9,000 image pairs and requiring approximately 670 megabytes of storage compressed and 11.5 gigabytes uncompressed (18.0:1 average compression ratio).
Each segmented image is 832 by 768 pixels and classified using the NCIC classes given by the FBI. The database also includes example software which was written on a SUN SPARCserver.
NIST Special Database 14 has the following features:
