Standard Guide for Capturing Facial Images for Use with Facial Recognition Systems

1.1 This guide is intended for use by practitioners who are choosing, setting up, and operating photographic equipment designed to capture facial images for use with an automated Facial Recognition System or used for manual comparisons by a trained facial examiner. This guide provides an overview of how to achieve the specifications defined in Annex E of ANSI/NIST-ITL-1-2011, Update 2015, for capturing facial images.

1.2 Annex E of ANSI/NIST-ITL-1-2011 defines a well-controlled capture environment and subject whereas this document will give guidance where tight controls in the capture environment and subject control cannot be achieved.

1.3 This guide addresses equipment considerations for two-dimensional (2D) conventional images. It does not address video, scanners, or three-dimensional (3D) capture.

1.4 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. The values given in parentheses are mathematical conversions to non-SI units that are provided for information only and are not considered standard.

1.5 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety, health, and environmental practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.

1.6 This international standard was developed in accordance with internationally recognized principles on standardization established in the Decision on Principles for the Development of International Standards, Guides and Recommendations issued by the World Trade Organization Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Committee.
