Minutia(e) point

A minutia(e) point is the

friction ridge characteristics that are used to individualize a fingerprint image. Minutia(e) are the points where friction ridges begin, terminate, or split into two or more ridges. In many fingerprint systems, the minutia(e) (as opposed to the images) are compared for recognition purposes.[1]
