Field Value

Fingerprint template generated by Extract(Person) or other template assigned for example after deserialization. This property is nullNothingnullptra null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic) by default.


Fingerprint template is an abstract model of the fingerprint that is serialized in a very compact binary format (up to a few KB). Templates are better than fingerprint images, because they require less space and they are easier to match than images. To generate Template, pass Fingerprint object with valid Image to Extract(Person). Template is required by Verify(Person, Person) and Identify(Person, IEnumerable<(Of <<'(Person>)>>)).

Format of the template may change in later versions of SourceAFIS. Applications are recommended to keep the original Image in order to be able to regenerate the Template.
