Biometrics Survey
Biological ID, Specifications, Characteristics, Controls & Tracking
Biometrics identify specific characteristics of an organism.  The identification, categorization, classification, and mass storage and retrieval of these characteristics will be used to identify living creatures. Characteristics include DNA, and structural formats of organisms such as retina formations. These characteristics will soon be used to identify and qualify people for entry, passage, and other security-oriented situations. Please help us identify public opinion and acceptance toward using biometrics by answering this survey. Your opinions and thoughts regarding the use of biometrics is appreciated.
Biometrics -- that is, your person biometric information -- will be included in passports, drivers licenses, medical records, and will help quickly qualify patients for medical procedures such as organ transplants.
