Line feature is one of the most important features of palmprint image. A novel approach of principal palm-line extraction is proposed in this paper based on their characteristics of ridge edges. First, gray adjustment and median filtering are used to enhance contrast and weaken noise. Then, palm-lines are detected based on diversity and contrast. After this step, an improved Hilditch algorithm is...
