For the purpose of transparency and reproducibility, The Danish National ID Centre has developed a data model to assist the facial examiner in placement on the conclusion/opinion scale. By processing case data, including suitability for comparison, image quality and levels of visibility, the model supports the manual facial examination. The aim of the model is to introduce limitations to the subjective evaluation of a face comparison, by introducing overall objective parameters into the decision through the data model.
