    Cognaxon has released NIST viewer which reads NIST (ANSI/NIST-ITL
    1-2000) file format.

    The advantage of NIST files is the ability to contain multiple images
    and other types of data about the person in one single file, which
    simplifies biometric data exchange between participating parties.
    As for example: one WSQ file contains only one fingerprint image, but
    one NIST file contains inside many fingerprint images and also other
    information.

    ANSI/NIST-ITL 1-2000 is Data Format for the Interchange of
    Fingerprint, Facial, & Scar Mark & Tattoo (SMT) Information defined by
    American National Standard for Information Systems.

    One single NIST (ANSI/NIST-ITL 1-2000) file is able to contain
    following types of data:
    Type-1 Transaction Information
    Type-2 Descriptive Text (User-defined)
    Type-3 Fingerprint Image Data (Low-resolution grayscale)
    Type-4 Fingerprint Image Data (High-resolution grayscale)
    Type-5 Fingerprint Image Data (Low-resolution)
    Type-6 Fingerprint Image Data (High-resolution)
    Type-7 Image Data (User-defined)
    Type-8 Signature Image Data
    Type-9 Minutiae Data
    Type-10 Facial & SMT Image Data
    Type-11 Reserved for Future Use
    Type-12 Reserved for Future Use
    Type-13 Latent Image Data (Variable-resolution)
    Type-14 Tenprint fingerprint Impressions (Variable-resolution)
    Type-15 Palmprint Image Data (Variable-resolution)
    Type-16 User-defined Testing Image Data (Variable-resolution)
