HENRY C. LEE Contents Introduction Recognition and Examination Identification and Individualization Osborn Grid Method Seymour Trace Method Photographic Strip Method Polygon Method Overlay Method Osterburg Grid Method Microscopic Triangulation Method Conventional Method Experience and Skill Identification Protocol Reconstruction Conclusion References Introduction The efforts of latent print examiners are directed toward two ultimate goals: one is the successful developing or enhancing of a latent print, and the other is identification or elimination based upon the developed latent print.

11 A transparent grid is superimposed over the latent and inked prints, but whereas the Osborn grid has no specific measurements, the grid lines of the Osterburg grid are at 1-mm intervals. The Osterburg method, however, goes beyond simply matching characteristics in corresponding grid cells. 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.
