Fingerprint evidence is undoubtedly the most reliable and acceptable evidence till date in the court of law. Fingerprints are obtained at the site of crime and in many old monuments and in excavated things. Estimating the gender of fingerprints is an emerging field and many methods using the fingerprint physical features like the ridge count and the ridge thickness have been used so far. Due to the immense potential of fingerprints as an effective method of identification an attempt has been made in the present work to analyze their correlation with gender of an individual using frequency domain technique and a pattern recognition technique. The performance of a fingerprint recognition system highly relies on the quality of the fingerprint images. The enhancement is an essential step required to improve the quality of the fingerprint image. In this paper, we propose a enhancement method based on Gabor filtering in wavelet domain.
