I've got a question regarding the loop fingerprint pattern. In the SWAMI software there are 2 possibilities - an ULNAR or a RADIAL loop. I actually have a pattern called a TWINNED loop but there is no option for it in the software. What shall I do?

Is that a composite?
Soon someone will answer your question. There is a lot of help here!

No, it's not a composite. The only reason I'm sure it's a twinned loop is because my husband is a Fingerprint Expert:-)

simply observe where it begins and ends

toward the pinkie or toward the thumb....
no matter how twinned

if one goes one way and the other goes the other way, then I d call it twinned ARCH ;)

In a twinned loop fingerprint one loop goes one way and the other one goes the other way. But it cannot be called a twinned arch;-)

Quoted Text
The central pocket loop composite has one ridge that forms a complete loop and at least two deltas. The twinned loop is like the central pocket except that it has two complete, rounded shapes within the pattern. The lateral pocket loop is similar to the twinned loop with its two distinct, rounded circuits, the difference being at some point the ridges curve sharply downward in one direction.

how many deltas do you have?

The central pocket loop and the lateral pocket loop that you mention are not an option in the SWAMI either.
Basically, fingerprints can form the following patterns:


The last 4 patterns are not included in the SWAMI software:-(

SWAMi is looking at symmetry more then anything else. ( Dr. D can correct me if I misunderstood). So no matter what if you are not symmetrical it will pick that up by your choices if the prints do not match.

So the patterns that are listed are what you need to chose from regardless of your differences. Putting composite allows the program to sort of override the pattern.
Like Lola said look at the deltas and the way the loop is going and chose a pattern from the list.

Don't sweat the small stuff--  :)
