The SOSignAnalyzer is a Tool which can render the biometric data from the Signature pad in 2D and 3D.
Therefore the Biometric Data can be loaded from the PDF document or as data file. The tool is used to make the biometrical data visible for a graphologist.
The tool itself will not compare 2 signatures and give you a value back how equal the signatures are. This have to be done by a graphologist.

Info about biometrical Data

The Signature Pad is not only saving the 2D Image of the signature, it´s collecting each second 500 coordinates packages, which contain values for X, Y, Z (pressure) and counter which can be used to calculate the time.


The chars after p represents the process ID. The process ID is not the same as the pad ID, but bounded to it so that no other StepOver pad may generate the same process ID. The process ID is unique and changes with each signature. You can, for example, use it as identification for a document in your workflow. The numbers after the letter g represents the GMT timestamp of the internal clock of the Pad (Format: (H)H:(M)M:(S)S (d)d.(m)m.(y)y ). If you use a pad who is not cabable of the features process ID and or timestamp you will get zeros after p an g.


You need to download the SOSignAnalyzer and extract it to your hard drive, Now you can start the SOSignAnalyser.exe.

Loading of the Biometric Data.

The first step is to load the biometrical data, there are 2 different ways to do that. 


Note: You can add signatures from different sources to the repository, for example from 2 PDF´s or a PDF and a biometric data file...

Show the Signature in 2D

After you added all the signatures to the repository you can take a look on them in 2D. The tool will use the biometric data string and will render it human radable. To access the 2D Version you need to click on Windows/2D sign viewer.


At the bottom left you find the animation-controls to redraw the signature.


Show the Signature in 3D

It´s also possible to show the signature in 3D, you can find this option in "Windows/3D sign viewer".
At the top right you have all the signatures of you repository like in the 2D View, select one and it will be shown in the 3D view.
