sUAS Crime & Accident Scene Investigations Mapping

Designed For All UAS 3D Mapping Mission Sets

Course Summary

Unmanned Aerial Vehicles and the 3D Mapping software applications are emerging as extremely accurate and efficient tools for crime and accident scene documentation and enhanced investigations.  It is remarkable to consider that if it can be seen with the naked eye, enhanced magnification, thermal imagery, or with an infrared camera, it can be almost perfectly preserved forever.  This new technology is changing how we can best serve the public.  In this hands-on course students will:

  • Explain unmanned aircraft capabilities for scene documentation
  • Describe agency operations and protocols
  • Select UAV-CSI equipment and software
  • Demonstrate data collection
  • Demonstrate crime/accident scene processing using Pix4D, Drone Deploy, or SkyBrowse
  • Demonstrate expert courtroom testimony
