This guidance replaces the widely used 'Manual of Fingerprint Development Techniques' 2nd Edition. It has been vastly revised and extended and it is present in a new style to reflect advances in both science and operational practice.

PLEASE NOTE: This is the Print-on-Demand version of the Fingermark Visualisation Manual, First Edition. The new Fingermark Visualisation Manual (ISBN: 9781782462347) has been designed as an electronic interactive PDF, enabling easy navigation throughout the document. This interactivity will be lost in paper format and as such the usability of the document will be affected.

The Fingermark Visualisation Manual is available to download as a fully searchable PDF from the TSO online library www.officialpublicationsonline.co.uk.
