The Dos and Don’ts of Mapping: Time and Life Saving Tips

by TNyland 19. April 2019 06:57

Investigating a fatal accident means there is little to no room for mistakes. Even the most experienced investigator can make a novice move, and it comes down to always being equipped for the worst. Arriving on scene only to discover your equipment is outdated, has low battery life, or has been left behind, requires the roadway to be shut down even longer for scene preservation.

Evolving Tech Has Shifted How Investigators Reconstruct a Crash Scene

by TNyland 22. March 2019 10:12

The constant change in our human infrastructure in developing a modernized autonomous society is affecting the frequency and types of traffic crashes investigators will come to see. To stay relevant, we must change with the world: altering procedures, replacing outdated equipment, and furthering our education and/or trainings. Investigators have been transferring from the old school method of documenting a scene with a tape measure and wheel, into the digital age of lasers, scanners, drones, and mapping software.

Clearing and documenting a crash scene are both equally important procedures that need to happen after a traffic crash. Officers and investigators are under a lot of pressure to document a scene as quickly, accurately, and effectively as possible, as no one incident is the end as the risk of secondary crashes are a dominant threat.

Drone Mapping: Aerial and Ground Measurements

by TNyland 14. February 2019 11:26

The rapid advancement and multiplying options have drastically reduced the cost of drones, shifting business models for a variety of industries. The number of public safety agencies acquiring drones has risen by 82% in the last year alone. Drones and lasers are transforming the way investigators collect their data on scene and are rapidly becoming one of the most invaluable tools for investigators who are tasked with accurate crash, crime, and fire analysis.

Drones provide many benefits to crash, crime, and fire investigators, and while there is a cool and fun element to flying a drone there are extensive rules, regulations, and certifications that need to be completed before one is able to fly their drone high in the sky and take their investigative skills to the next level.

Revolutionizing Crash Reconstruction with Drones and Lasers

by TNyland 23. January 2019 12:18

Drones and lasers aide traffic crash officials in reducing secondary crashes by spending less time on scene.

The Global Status Report on Road Safety of 2018 states that road traffic accidents claim more than 1.35 million lives each year: globally. That's 3,750 lives each day.
