This letter investigates a criterion of fingerprint image quality. To establish the criterion is very important for developing the more excellent image enhancement technique. As the criterion, this letter proposes a method based on the conception of autocorrelation. From experimental results, it can be shown that the method is basically available for estimating the fingerprint image quality.
