Paper Abstract

The aim of this work is the removal of distracting background patterns from forensic evidence so that the evidence is rendered more visible. An example is the image of a finger print on a non-periodic background. The method involves registering the image with a control image of the background pattern that we seek to remove. A statistical comparison of the registered images identifies the latent mark.
