In terms of forensics investigations, preserving the quality of an accident scene or the evidence contained within isn’t just important – it’s critical. Our 3D Laser site scanning service is a relatively recent advancement that allows professionals to create real-time, 3D models of environments (accidents or fire scenes) using a series of scans that measure critical characteristics such as distance, spacial relations and more, in the most accurate way possible.
The Advantages and Benefits
One of the major benefits of 3D laser scanning services ultimately comes down to the fact that it uses technology to quickly and accurately collect dimensions and data that would otherwise be difficult and costly to collect. Consider the example of a vehicle accident reconstruction, where under normal circumstances it would be necessary for investigative professionals to enter an active roadway in order to perform their normal duties. With 3D laser scanning services, they have the ability to collect and capture millions of data points concerning the accident site. After the scans are processed, the distances between items of interest within the scans can be accurately measured.
3D Laser scanning services also help speed up the progress of an investigation, which ultimately saves costs for the client. The time and resources to capture millions of accurate data points would be cost prohibitive for almost all investigations. ATS is able to capture millions of data points for accident reconstruction, burned structures or vehicles, as well as industrial accident sites and equipment. The captured data not only allows our investigators to measure items of interest within the scans, but the data captured in the scans is a permanent record of the evidence. Over time the evidence changes, such as: skid marks fade away at an accident scene, a burned structure is demolished, or an industrial accident site and its equipment are no longer available. Without the proper documentation of the evidence, most investigations are not able to be accurately completed.
Finally, the biggest benefit of all in terms of 3D laser scanning services is that it provides complete, comprehensive and actionable documentation as quickly as possible. Not only does it provide accurate measurements of an entire area, but it also provides more valuable data that can eventually be used in a court of law.
