Each type of characteristic is weighed according to a purported order of frequency, and weights are also assigned to cells without a characteristic. Determination of identity is made by the total value of the weighed characteristics found in a given area. No agency has officially adopted this method for establishing the identity of latent prints. Its application in latent print comparisons is entirely theoretical at this time. 4 Osterburg grid method. 12,13 A microscope is used to view the latent and inked prints at magnifications between 10× and 25×.

Sir William Herschel responded to Faulds’ letter by writing to Nature; his letter was published on November 25, 1880, and the controversy in British fingerprint circles dates from this time. Faulds could not possibly be privy to Herschel’s fingerprint experiments since he was in Japan for some of the time. In Fingerprint Whorld, in conjunction with Martin Leadbetter, I published eight chapters of The Faulds Legacy, and regarding Herschel’s letter in Nature, I commented that … in Herschel’s own words he was working with fingerprints for twenty-three years prior to Faulds’ Nature letter, consequently it was surely his responsibility to publicly announce his researches at a time convenient to himself.

If there are significant differences in some of the class characteristics measurements, then the questioned sample can be absolutely excluded as coming from the particular source. In other words, the exclusionary value of comparison in the forensic field is considered absolute. Depending on the nature and type of the physical evidence, no further analysis can be made beyond the comparison step with many types of physical evidence due to inherent limitations. Two approaches have been used for latent print identification and individualization: systems engineering and human problem-solving techniques.
