Headprint / cheveux

After separation of hair area from the background in overhead imagery, extraction of features that characterize the color and texture of hair is done for identification purpose. Although the visual appearance of hair cannot be used as a long-term biometric due to the nonrigid nature of hair, a realistic scenario where the time interval between gallery and probe imagery is short enough can achieve reliable performance.
