A Matlab Code for minutiae preserving fingerprint compression, the accuracies are evaluated using connected componebts analysis.
How to run ??
1. Place the folder in Matlab path and add the Dataset and all its contents to the path.
2. Run Finger_SVD.m and select an image from dataset
3. It takes time for first compression, so observe the 'busy' status at left bottem end of command window
4. The first compression value appears on the command window, keep pressing enter and observe the images until last compression.
