We propose an analytic-to-holistic approach which can identify faces at different perspective variations. The database for the test consists of 40 frontal-view faces. The first step is to locate 15 feature points on a face. A head model is proposed, and the rotation of the face can be estimated using geometrical measurements. The positions of the feature points are adjusted so that their corresponding positions for the frontal view are approximated. These feature points are then compared with the feature points of the faces in a database using a similarity transform. In the second step, we set up windows for the eyes, nose, and mouth. These feature windows are compared with those in the database by correlation. Results show that this approach can achieve a similar level of performance from different viewing directions of a face. Under different perspective variations, the overall recognition rates are over 84 percent and 96 percent for the first and the first three likely matched faces, respectively
