Unlike manual techniques, a 3D laser scanner captures millions of data points to create a point cloud map. Multiple 360-degree scans can be combined to create a complete 3D view of a scene that can be revisited later in great detail.
Increased accuracy in measurements and calculations helps ensure that officers have better information for court, which can put away reckless drivers and make roads safer for everyone. Here are some examples of how law enforcement officers are using digital tools to investigate traffic accidents.
Since the earliest days of trial by jury, detectives have been searching for new ways to help jurors visualize crime scenes. Using new computer and photographic technologies, investigators can create diagrams with complex 3-D surfaces and immersive 360-degree images.
