Webinar: Portable Advanced 3D Imaging for Footwear and Tire Impressions

A webinar on Wednesday, October 23, 2019 (2 - 3:30 pm ET) will explain the principles and capabilities of a fully automated portable system with an easy-to use-graphical user interface (GUI) for shoe and tire impression capture.

The presenters have four prototype systems ready to be evaluated by interested examiners or practitioners, providing opportunities for users to interact with the system and provide feedback to further improve the technology.

The entire hardware system includes a digital complementary metal-oxide semiconductor (CMOS) camera, a digital-light-processing (DLP) projector, and a laptop computer. Captured images are processed to create a 3D surface map as well as a color image that is 100% aligned with the 3D surface. 3D data can be immediately visualized on the screen for monitoring capture quality, or saved to digital storage media.

Detailed learning objectives:

– Familiarize with one advanced 3D imaging instrument specifically for tire and shoe impression capture
– Familiarize with the principle behind such an advanced 3D imaging technology
– Learn how to use such an advanced imaging technology for evidence collection

Interview with an Expert

One of the more specialized areas of crime-scene investigation has to do with searching for evidence of arson. To get some background in this area, we spoke with an individual who has had more than 46 years in fire service, 24 of which have focused specifically on fire/arson investigation.
