In the process of thenar palmprint objective and quantitative recognition, the locating and segmentation of thanar palmprint is very important. For the specificity of the region that we need, a set of approach is proposed to extract the thenar palmprint. The method to the collected palmprint image includes filtering, binary processing and contour tracking, obtaining the key point, and after choosing an appropriate location central point, the thenar palmprint is obtained. The experimental results illustrate the effectiveness of the method.
