The above animation depicts a drivers point of view while travelling down the road at 50km/h and 30 km/h. The ability to experiment with different factors is an efficient way to identify and evaluate spatial and timing issues. If the theory of opposing counsel is known, it too can be previewed and evaluated. This is a very powerful tool which can provide insight into the strategy of the opposition and allow you to identify and… read more →
The use of digital video evidence is rapidly increasing in litigation. Precise reconstruction of accident scenes is possible using video footage from sources such as traffic cameras, security videos, vehicle “dash-cams” and even smartphones. The spatial information of any object seen in the video footage (including the camera itself) can be extracted for analysis, providing data for precise calculations of speed, motion, time and distance.
PHOTO RECONSTRUCTION AND ANALYSIS: OBTAINING MEASUREMENTS FROM PHOTOS By introducing two-dimensional scene photographs into a three-dimensional computer environment, it is possible to locate and obtain precise measurements of any characteristics or features that are visible in photos but are no longer available at the scene (e.g. tire marks, road features, visibility obstructions). The images and video on this page show imported accident scene photos matched into a laser scanned digital environment for the reconstruction of… read more →

Granville Island Scan To scan a section of road and bridge under Granville Island, we used a Trimble TX5 for 11 scans at 1/4 resolution. The data collected by scanner is so dense that most computer systems and software packages can not handle it without decimation (reducing the density of points) . For example, in this case, 484 million points were scanned in total, and the point cloud exported for use in the video contains… read more →
Camera Matching – Photo and Video Reconstruction in a 3D Digital Model Photographs and video footage can be digitally reconstructed with a high degree of accuracy to obtain reliable information for analysis, such as measurements, speed and timing data, sightlines and more. By importing accident scene photographs or video footage frames into a dimensionally accurate digital model, characteristics or features that are present in scene photographs but are no longer available at the scene (e.g.… read more →
Volar Distal Radial Plate Radius fractures are among the most common and most commonly treated fractures. The animation in the video clip illustrates volar plating a wrist fracture.
