Fingerprint identification system being the most developed and emphasized among the various practically employed biometric systems, has yet to make a long journey to prove its effectiveness in terms of speed and accuracy. Of various options for increasing systems efficiency, one may be the combination or fusion of various contemporary fingerprint identification systems. This study reveals the possibility for introducing a fingerprint identification system based on different fingerprint matching systems, working in close collaboration. Two different fingerprint representation schemes are evaluated and a merger point for the two is suggested.
