During a forensic investigation, the recording of evidence in high detail with no distortion and limiting the loss of information is paramount. This could mean the difference between finding a possible offender or the removal of an innocent party from an investigation. Although the current method of recording three dimensional footprints records fine and minimises distortion, it still suffers from a loss of information due to the conversion of a three-dimensional subject into a two-dimensional image. Recent studies into the uses of photogrammetry has highlighted its usefulness in recording an object with high detail and little to no distortion while maximizing the amount of information retained in the three-dimensional model.
