Utilizing Close-Range Structure from Motion Photogrammetry in Virtual Reality for Enhanced Forensic Scene Documentation and Collaboration

On this page

Accurate documentation and preservation of crime scenes are essential for effective investigation. The Dundee GT Protocol is a standard operating procedure designed by practitioners to enable quick and precise capture of indoor scenes using DSLR cameras with ultra-wide lenses, producing a dataset suitable for Structure from Motion (SfM) photogrammetry. This technique allows for the creation of accurate 3D data of the scene, which can be visualised in Virtual Reality (VR) for immersive reconstruction. Our systematic approach was designed to make the process more straightforward, and preliminary tests show the potential for accurate data supporting VR-based decision-making tools. Further research is needed to explore the usability and potential applications of this technique, including its usefulness for the training and competency testing of forensic practitioner
