NIST (ANSI/NIST-ITL 1-2000) library released

Cognaxon has released "NIST (ANSI/NIST-ITL 1-2000) library" which
adds
the power of NIST (ANSI/NIST-ITL 1-2000) file format to your software
projects using only a few lines of code.
Additionally "NIST (ANSI/NIST-ITL 1-2000) library" has built-in
support
for decompressing fingerprint images from WSQ image format.

The advantage of NIST files is the ability to contain multiple images
and other types of data about the person in one single file, which
simplifies biometric data exchange between participating parties.
As for example: one WSQ file contains only one fingerprint image, but
one NIST file contains inside many fingerprint images and also other
information.

ANSI/NIST-ITL 1-2000 is Data Format for the Interchange of
Fingerprint,
Facial, & Scar Mark & Tattoo (SMT) Information defined by American
National Standard for Information Systems.

One single NIST (ANSI/NIST-ITL 1-2000) file is able to contain

following types of data:
Type-1 Transaction Information
Type-2 Descriptive Text (User-defined)
Type-3 Fingerprint Image Data (Low-resolution grayscale)
Type-4 Fingerprint Image Data (High-resolution grayscale)
Type-5 Fingerprint Image Data (Low-resolution)
Type-6 Fingerprint Image Data (High-resolution)
Type-7 Image Data (User-defined)
Type-8 Signature Image Data
Type-9 Minutiae Data
Type-10 Facial & SMT Image Data
Type-11 Reserved for Future Use
Type-12 Reserved for Future Use
Type-13 Latent Image Data (Variable-resolution)
Type-14 Tenprint fingerprint Impressions (Variable-resolution)
Type-15 Palmprint Image Data (Variable-resolution)
Type-16 User-defined Testing Image Data (Variable-resolution)
Sample projects are provided for:
