DigTrace: three-dimensional analysis of footwear traces

Conference Theatre
Footwear impressions provide an important source of evidence within a range of criminal investigations. They may place a suspect’s footwear at a crime scene or link multiple crimes leading to vital criminal intelligence. Despite rapid advances in other areas of forensic science, the techniques and tools used to capture and analyse footwear evidence, have hardly changed in over a hundred years – tracks are still cast in plaster, photographed and compared visually in order to match a footwear sole to a particular make or model of shoe.
