3D Technologies For Bloodstain Pattern Analysis
May 25, 2020
Abstract: The use of 3D technologies such as the laser scanner and photogrammetry for documentation and analysis of bloodstains are powerful tools. Research in this area has shown that the accuracy and repeatability of determining the area of origin using these methods agree with traditional methods. More importantly, using 3D technologies allows for more complex scenarios to be recorded with the added benefit of reducing the documentation time. This opens the door to complex bloodstain patterns where some analysts would not attempt an analysis using conventional methods. Current research and testing results will be presented with attention to overall documentation, complex cast-off stains and multiple surfaces that will be given attention as well as the workflows using different techniques.
Certificates: Certificate will be offered to those who participate in the full webinar.
