Jill explains how RIEGL’s terrestrial scanners are being used to create court admissible, 3D records of crime and crash scenes by emergency responders around the world.

In this six minute podcast, Jillian will talk about RIEGL’s LiDAR scanning tools that improve scene safety by giving emergency responders the ability to document scenes quickly, and with only one officer.

Jill will touch on how LiDAR enables officers to collect evidence unseen by the naked eye. 

She will also touch on how the scanners help show the scene at rest, but also the scene at impact. 

We hope you enjoy Jillian’s forensic series.
