A new detection methodology for both of the core and the delta of the fingerprint using the extended relational graph is presented. This paper shows the way to detect both of the core loop and the delta loop from the extended relational graph, which we proposed in order to summarize the global feature of the fingerprint ridge pattern distribution. The experimental results for 180 fingerprint samples show that the processing time is ranging from 0.34 [sec] to 0.44 [sec] for each fingerprint image by using Pentium 4 1.8 GHz Processor. In our experiments, the core and the delta were successfully extracted in 94.4% of the 180 samples.
