This book presents a history and status of latent fingerprint development, enhancement, identification, storage and retrieval, and testimony. As evidenced in the book, the intended readers are not only fingerprint examiners (users) and legal experts (attorneys), but also chemists, physicists, biologists, information scientists, and image scientists and engineers. This illustrates the multidisciplinary nature of this expanding field. Some of the contributing authors to the ten chapters are the founders of the advanced technology currently being used.
