A more interactive process might include the need for agencies to collaborate on sharing database information. As the recognition of the value of fingerprints began to spread and the clas- sihcation systems become more widely used and understood, the number of fingerprints taken began to grow.

This book describes the AFIS process in summary and in detail. Although the FBI card was distinct from the local and state cards in color and field format, the state and local cards might be identical in form.
