2014 Forensic Investigation of a Murder Scene

Forensic investigation simulation for students at UWE. The simulation allows students to explore a detail rich environment collecting a variety of information from each object using an interactive tool. They can place rulers to take screen shots simulating the use of photographs to document a scene, collect finger mark information and test their methodology for approaching a crime scene investigation. The crime scene is set in a bedsit environment and is based on actual events allowing the students to relate what they see in the simulation to other learning materials used on the course.
