Some of the current approaches to fingerprint image binarization are investigated. The importance of the binarization phase of processing as it relates to the identification of accurate minutiae points is established. An overview of the most commonly used approaches in this area is then presented. The strengths and weaknesses of these approaches are explored and suggestions for future research and improvements are set forth.
