So if I only have vertical white lines in my fingerprints do I still tick the white lines box on SWAMI?


nope
horizontal are the white lines

read the book page 73

thanks for reply Lola. I'm very happy to untick it as it increases my choices....  

I've looked at p73 again but I still don't see anything about horizontal versus vertical lines.  It talks about secondary creases, I take it I'm supposed to infer from that the lines are horizontal - I didn't!!  suspect I may not be alone on that......

do not click white lines if vertical

Vertical ones are often caused by hormonal changes

if it turns out that a measurement is different, and it's time locked (like say the leg ones)... how does one go about fixing that?

The images on that video show horizontal white lines but it doesn't say that if yours are vertical you should ignore them - I think it would make the videos more useful if they were to actually state this fact, otherwise people will be clicking the box as I did, because they have white lines, not realising they are the wrong sort.  Unless you already know that vertical ones are from a different cause, you are likely to be inputting incorrect data  

thanks for sorting me out on it, anyway!

I thought i had this but am doubting myself again - Just to check the cranial measurements again.

in the video it says about an inch above the ears. my widest point is at the top of my ears. does it vary?

cranial length - In the video it seems say just below the hair line or there abouts. normally it is from the top of the nose or just above there.

on this link it is "g" to "op"

The most difficult thing I found in getting my measurements were the fingerprint classifications.  I had quite a lot of lines so I'll have to go revisit that - hori/verti. Just from observation, there are verticals, but also angular/crisscross! I'm not sure if there's sufficient ink on the paper still (since my husband and I both used it).  Where would we be able to get more inked paper?  I wish there were more photos of differing patterns with the lines.  It's really hard for me to decipher them with all of the lines going on! All and all I appreciate the visual presentation of the measurements. I think it would be a great idea to mention the video on the paperwork that comes with the kit.  It would be a great tool to aid the person taking the measurements! Thanks so much!

If you can not read them use the setting for composite the program will skim right over them until a later time when you can read them. Counting the deltas is easier then seeing the patterns. Just look up fingerprint deltas for photos of them.

none for an arch

one for a loop
two for a whorl.

It seems as if we will be scratching our heads until the end of time trying to get these measurements right! I got so tired of measuring, remeasuring and reremeasuring the first, second and third go arounds that I was sick to death of trying to get them right! But when I have time I will do it again. (sigh) I suppose unlocking SWAMI will keep someone busier than usual for a while.....

just moving this up on board so It will be easy to get to Thank you, deblynn3!

This is a helpful video.  It looks like my lower leg may be longer than the upper based on these guidelines.  But will probably watch again and try once more before making any changes.  
Very nice job, some things are easier to understand.

Well I wish they would have had this out sooner. I think I'll redo the measurements for everything to be on the safe side. I'll get one of my kids to help me. Gynic or andric, This can be influenced by the Q-angle of the knee joint. I have an acute Q-angle, So when I put my ankles together the thighs are smooshed to gether even when I weigh a buck. But the finger meaurements can be maddening and finger prints. I am thinking about going to the police department and gettting them to do them and help me classify them. Good luck all.

Hi LIn,
There was a post back in 2008 by Dr.Natalie Colicci who worked then at Dr.D'c clinic. She posted a photo showing exactly where to measure the lower leg, so here goes:

The video shows you to run your finger along the groove to the side of your leg. There you'll feel a knobbly bone sticking out (when you press on it it can hurt quite a bit- that's the right one! It's roughly the same size as your ankle bone).
Now, here's the important bit...measure from the TOP of that round knobbly bit to the CENTRE of your ankle bone.

Dr. Colicci's diagram is VERY clear on this!

You should be able to find this old thread somewhere- I have a print out of it...it was posted Jan 4, 2008 by paulam, title: "how to correctly measure my legs", posted in the Geno forum, Dr.C's picture was posted Jan 8.

Hope that helps!

Dr. Colicci's diagram is certainly clear.  But her instructions are for measuring the length of a single bone.


Eric's video recommends measuring from a point on one bone to a point on a different bone.

Following Eric's procedure will always result in a measurement that is several centimeters longer than you get following Dr. Colicci's instructions and diagram.

Which is more accurate?

Or is the other leg bone measurement correspondingly different such that if yo use one measurement system for both measurements, you still get a correct ratio?

They are measuring something different.

So it is not really a question of accuracy, it is what you choose to measure.

I would prefer to measure lengths of bones, rather then arbitrary points on legs.

But that is not how we are to do it now.

Andrea is hired by IFHI, and does training at the conferences.

She says to use the method on Eric's videos.

Quoted Text

Well sort of.

If you mix systems you get substantially different ratios, that change SWAMI (and GenoType results).

If you follow the old system you get an approximation of the upper leg length that is sort of of it its total vertical height of the femur as measured standing as it normally would be in the leg.

The new method gets the length of the femur measured sort of diagonally. This is several centimeters more than the old method.

In the old method you measured the length of the fibula.

In the new method you measure the length of the fibula plus a few extra centimeters.

So the ratio are approximately the same if you add a few extra centimeters to the length of both the upper and lower legs.

If you only add the extra length to one leg measurement and not the other this is going to change things.
