Nowadays, several biometric databases already contain millions of entries of individuals. With an increasing number of enrolled individuals, the response time of queries grows and can become critical. Fingerprint indexing offers a set of techniques to reduce the workload of entries, which have to be compared thoroughly. This work surveys research on such techniques. It focuses on the features of fingerprints, which are used as input. This survey also provides an assessment of the quality of the body of research in this field. Deficiencies herein are identified, e.g. there is a lack of common datasets and metrics used for testing.
