The Forensic Evidence Division is incorporating new digital technologies in the documentation of crime scenes. 

 

This web link is an example of stitching multiple photographs into a large panoramic image.  This GigaPan image documents the scene of a Portland Police Officer involved shooting at NE Lloyd Boulevard and NE 7th Avenue that took place on March 4th 2013.  The panoramic image is an example of what the Forensic Evidence Division prepared for the grand jury.  The application of this new digital technology aids viewers in better understanding the physical relationship of evidence documented in scenes.
