The FIDENTIS Analyst II tool follows the former FIDENTIS project, which started in early 2012 as a collaborative project of experts from various scientific fields (anthropology, biostatistics, computer sciences) aimed at developing guidelines for comparing human faces for the purposes of personal identification and face recognition in forensics. However, during the years of wild development, the project reached efficiency and maintainability limits. The new generation of the tool aims to provide a narrowly focused, efficient tool for police and anthropologists.

Installation and usage:

  1. Download and install OpenJDK 17 or Oracle JDK 17 (also tested on Oracle JDK 11)
  2. Download and unpack the latest FIDENTIS Analyst 2 release.
  3. Download and unpack the testing data.
  4. Run fidentisanalyst/bin/fidentisanalyst64.exe (or other variant depending on your OS) and open a human face (an .obj file) from fidentisanalyst/data/.
  5. Enjoy the tool 🙂
