Tattoo Recognition
Module for Digital PhotoManager


Tattoo Recognition is a module to Digital PhotoManager that will perform a search against an image you select and locate any similar tattoos that are currently in the system. This feature is similar to facial recognition, except that it looks for patterns that match in a tattoo. Agencies are currently using Tattoo Plus to identify individuals that have previously been arrested as well as identifying if the tattoo is connected to a gang.


Once you upload a probe tattoo image, you can enter a description for the search so you can easily retrieve the results later. You will receive an email notification when the tattoo search has been completed, letting you know how many possible matches have been located. The probe image will be displayed next to the results so you can quickly compare them. You can zoom in on the retrieved images to verify if an image is a match to the one you submitted. You can select to mark any of the images as matches or mark them for later review. The module also enables you to view any record information associated with the tattoo image as well as any additional linked images, such as other tattoos or mugshot images.


Tattoo Plus includes a Tattoo Recognition Administration Module to allow system administrators to view the results and their match scores side-by-side with the probe image. It also provides an event log to aid in troubleshooting. Searches can be performed from the tattoo administration as well.
