Abstract/Summary

Police sketching, often referred to as cartographic sketching, is an important tool in law enforcement. It is used to identify people given the descriptions of eyewitnesses of that person. At times, this can be the only clue left to investigators about the case. As of today, law enforcement and investigate agencies have to compare by hand the sketch to their database of faces. This is a very tedious and time-consuming process. There have been several experimental and commercial systems developed for the purpose of facial recognition, although all have individual strengths and weaknesses. Presently, very few systems have been applied to the task of matching cartographic sketches to real faces. This research focuses on the use of eigenfaces in the comparison and identification of an individual's face from a face database given a sketch.
