IIITD Multi-surface Latent Fingerprint Database (IIITD MSLFD)


IIITD Multi-surface Latent Fingerprint Database (IIITD MSLFD) consists of 551 latent fingerprints from 51 subjects lifted from eight different surfaces. The eight surfaces are: 1) Ceramic plate, 2) Ceramic mug, 3) Transparent glass, 4) Steel glass, 5) Compact disc, 6) Compact disc mailer (CD mailer), 7) Paperback book cover, and 8) Hardbound book cover. The corresponding slap fingerprint (4+4+2 prints) gallery images are captured using CrossMatch L-Scan Patrol at 500 dpi.
