CHAPTER 4

Fingermarks

Fingermarks are traditionally used for individualisation purposes in a criminal investigation and as evidence in the courts. In the past few decades we have seen a wide variety of novel visualisation methods being explored. Moreover, there has been an enormous increase in the technological possibilities for the chemical analysis and imaging of fingermarks. These developments have a profound implication for criminal investigations. In this chapter the highlights of the challenges in detection of fingermarks will be discussed.
