This book demonstrates how to apply 3D visualizations for both reconstruction of a crime scene and in courtroom proceedings. It also shows how to base that visualization on sound measurement. The text presents models that go well beyond the typical vehicle and bullet trajectories, showing how 3D mapping technologies in such areas as bloodstain pattern analysis, autopsy measurements, and bite mark analysis can improve an investigator's case.
