Fingerprint recognition is one of the most popular and successful methods used for person identification which takes advantage of the fact that the fingerprint has some unique characteristics called minutiae which are points where a curve track finishes intersect with other track or branches off. A critical step in studying the statistics of fingerprint minutiae is to reliably extract minutiae from the fingerprint images. However fingerprint images are rarely of perfect quality. They may be degraded and corrupted due to variations in skin and impression conditions. Thus image enhancement techniques are employed prior to minutiae extraction to obtain a more reliable estimation of minutiae locations. The goal of this paper is to represent a complete process of fingerprint feature extraction for minutiae matching.
