Fingerprint Verification Competition

Fingerprint Verification Competition is the world’s largest competition for fingerprint verification algorithms. It applies algorithms over four databases of fingerprint images from multiple sources and computes a set of biometrics parameters describing its accuracy and performance behavior. Each of four image database has diverse quality and characteristics depending of the source sensor type. There are two types of results that Fingerprint Verification Competition publishes: Average results and Database results. Average results are computed from the databases all together. Database results are computed from each database separately.
