The purpose of this paper is to provide additional analysis of image quality and Henry Classification on Finger location on a single sensor. One hundred and sixty nine individuals provided six impressions of their left index, left middle, right index, and right middle fingers. The results show that there is significant difference in image quality, Henry classifications, and zoo animal distribution across the four finger locations under study. The results of this research show that location is an important consideration when developing enrollment best practices for single print systems.
