The accuracy of dermatoglyphics and its application as a scientific tool depends on the quality and clarity the dermal prints. The ink method which is the commonly used can result in poor quality print due to over-inking and cause inconvenience to subjects. Digital techniques using customized Biometric Machine are usually expensive especially for researchers in the developing world. Therefore, the study aims at introducing an easy digital procedure that can be conveniently use to produce good quality print and accurate result. This new method uses Hp digital scanner and Autocad computer software. The scanner is used to capture the image of the dermal patterns of the fingers, palm, toes and sole while the autocad software program is capable of measuring the angles and counting the ridges automatically. The accuracy of the method was tested by evaluating a-b ridge count and atd angle of 30 samples using the ink method and this new method. There was significant difference in the result (p<0.05). This difference was as a result of our ability to clearly identify the exact triradius point and the ridges which resulted in accurate measurement of angles and counting of ridges. We therefore recommend this method in clinical, forensic and research settings in both rural and urban areas of developing countries where access to high-tech biometric equipment is limited due to cost
