Relative contrast mask in SourceAFIS transparency data

SourceAFIS » Algorithm » Transparency » Relative contrast mask

Relative contrast mask, a part of algorithm transparency, is a set of primary blocks where contrast is too low relative to other parts of the image. It is computed during feature extraction. Relative contrast mask contributes to combined mask.

Visualization

Relative contrast visualization can be computed from this stage's binary data mapped onto blocks and the original fingerprint image. Visualization itself is not part of transparency data.

Relative contrast mask. Yellow area consists of blocks excluded due to low contrast.

Format

Relative contrast mask has the same format as absolute contrast mask.
