Dear Mr. Ed German,
Thanks for the info. AND Thanks for setting up this forum as I tried to find newsgroups on topic of fingerprint for a long time but failed. Your forum offers a learning place to fingerprint experts who are keen to learn.

Because many (if not most) modern AFIS systems use automated classification schemes which do NOT include all four types of modified Henry System whorls ... or the whorl tracings... or the exact ridge counts of each loop... you will not normally find "automated" generation of the NCIC FP code.
There are some AFIS systems which can automatically generate the modified Henry system classification if you manually feed in the details for the NCIC FP code. It doesn't work the other way, though... since the (for example) exact loop ridge counts of most fingers are not represented in the Henry system classification.
Hopefully some other folks will post related details about their system. We use AFIS software from FBI IAFIS and also the Phoenix Group's Tracker system.
These comments do not purport to represent the opinion or position of my employer or anyone else.

I am working in Hong Kong Police Force and we use NEC as our AFIS system. We do not have NCIC (National Crime Information Center) FPC (Fingerprint print classification) code implemented. Are these NCIC FPC codes automatically generated or by manual? If it is automatically generated, what AFIS system are you using?
Thanks for any feedback.
