A flowchart of FVS is now available for download
click here to download it in PDF format. I should have made it before I
started the project but I didn't. This will give everyone an idea of how FVS
should work. I hope that this will explain better what I want FVS to be.

Jaap de Haan has come through once again. Here are the new changes:
Also Diego Zuccato helped to fix the Makefile.

Jaap de Haan (aka Binaryman) has made a few improvements to the code. The
following changes have been made:
Easier to read code, tabs added for better spacing
The Image structure has then just one pointer to a byte array.
Uses old Unix convention (appending _t)

Added a message board to the site allowing message and discussions to be
posted. If there are more specific categories that you want besides general
(such as programming, bugs, etc) please contact me and I will add it.
I have made a few changes to the source and will be making a new release
available soon. I have also come up with an idea to add degree measure to
minutia matching for better accuracy. As soon as I am done I will post the new
source on the cvs repository.
Yesterday was PJAS (Pennsylvania Junior Academy of Science) and I made my
presentation on FVS, so I decided to make a special release available of the
source. Its the PJAS release. I have also added the powerpoint presentation
online. Click here to download or goto to the download
page. Change made to the code are as follow:
Also the mailing list is up and working to join

Source code has been released and is available on
SourForge's CVS server. Goto
Download page for instructions on how to download
from CVS server.
This is the first release and is not perfect. There are many things that must
be changed and corrected. The source is not very neat but you can get the
general idea. Here is what my immediate plans are:
Rewrite Makefile to compile into library
Rewrite Match_Part1() so that it works faster
Rewrite Thin() to work faster
Add rotation; Match_Part2 is actually rotation but it did not work out.
Help with any of the above items would be greatly appreciated.
I have provided 3 sample fingerprints for basic testing. To create your own
applications follow code in main.c, for opening images that are not BMP (or if
using fingerprint scanner) look through bmp.c to learn how to add pixel values
to struct Image. I will soon write documentation on how it works. Also look
forward to a PowerPoint (if you want another format e-mail me and I try to put
that up as well) presentation on fingerprint verification coming within
a week or so.

I have launched the site today. Not much but I did it very
quickly. If you recognize the logos or the format of the page that is because
if has been taken from webGFX.ch, a special
thanks to them. If I had more time I would design my own layout, but for now
this will have to do. Also a special thanks to
SourceForge.net for hosting this
site. I am doing some testing to FVS and will make the source available soon.
I need some help make the makefile (no pun intended), I would
look it up myself but if anyone has the time to help me out it will be greatly
appreciated. I need it to compile the source into a library and install it to
the default lib directory. Also it has to cross compatible. Any help with this
would be greatly appreciated.
