Augmented Reality Tools for Enhanced Forensics Simulations and Crime Scene Analysis

ByRobert Rice

Forensics simulations and crime scene analysis using virtual environments can increase in value and efficacy through the use of augmented reality tools for highly accurate simulations that are immersive and used both at the scene and in a reconstruction off-site. Law enforcement and investigations officers will have the ability to mark and highlight evidence with virtual markers and metadata, as well as run real-time tests and analysis through the use of dynamic tools and immediate access to key databases and other information sources.
