High resolution fingerprint images have been increasingly used in fingerprint recognition. They can provide more fine features (e.g. pores) than standard fingerprint images to improve the recognition accuracy. It is however still an open issue whether or not existing quality assessment methods are suitable for high resolution fingerprint images. This paper compares some typical quality indexes by analyzing the correlation between them and their prediction ability on minutia-based and pore-based high resolution fingerprint recognition accuracy. Experimental results show that the indexes based on ridge orientation are more effective for high resolution fingerprint recognition systems.
