WSQ image library (for fingerprints) 3.6 Reads and converts WSQ (FBI's Wavelet Scalar Quantization) and 33 other formats.
Supports: WSQ, BMP, TIFF, PNG, JPEG, JP2, JPC, RGB, TGA, GIF, etc.
WSQ chosen by FBI as the fingerprint image compression standard as superior to other formats.
Clean the Window! 1.0 The goal of the game is to clean the ice from the window before the window freezes back.
The program requires video capture device (e.g. web camera).
The advantage of NIST files is the ability to contain multiple images and other types of data about the person in one single file, which simplifies biometric data exchange between participating parties.
As for example: one WSQ file contains only one fingerprint image, but one NIST file contains inside many fingerprint images and also other information.
ANSI/NIST-ITL 1-2000 is Data Format for the Interchange of Fingerprint, Facial, & Scar Mark & Tattoo (SMT) Information defined by American National Standard for Information Systems.
One single NIST (ANSI/NIST-ITL 1-2000) file is able to contain following types of data:
Type-1 Transaction Information
Type-2 Descriptive Text (User-defined)
Type-3 Fingerprint Image Data (Low-resolution grayscale)
Type-4 Fingerprint Image Data (High-resolution grayscale)
