Sometimes an elliptical whorl is seen on this eminence. Fingerprint Classification A major step forward in the use of fingerprints was a method of classification that enabled fingerprint forms bearing differing patterns to be placed in a certain order, thus enabling the search area to be minimized. If a classification system did not exist, and a person gave a wrong name, each set of fingerprint forms would have to be examined to discover the correct identity of the offender; the person would obviously not be traced by doing an alphabetical check.
This number always remains the same for the individual, and as the individual ages and collects convictions, the file accordingly gets thicker, all convictions in the file being confirmed by fingerprints taken at the time of arrest. It does happen that a person gives a fictitious name when fingerprinted, and if dealt with expeditiously at court, previous convictions will not be cited and punishment will be dealt out as if for a first-time offender. In the meantime, the routine is inexorably taking place: the fictitious name with the associated fingerprint classification is not found after a name search, and so the fingerprint form is then searched through the fingerprint collection.
If all fingerprint patterns were whorls, the classification would be 32 32 The Henry system therefore divided all fingerprint forms into 1024 bundles. It is quite obvious that if fingerprint forms are filed according to this system, the searcher chooses the bundle bearing the appropriate Henry fraction and merely searches this one bundle. There are further subclassifications, which mean that every bundle can be further divided for searching. Unfortunately, some fingerprint patterns merge their characteristics and have to be searched as alternatives, meaning that additional bundles have to be examined in order to positively conclude a search.
