The CSAFE team is developing practical statistical applications to aid crime scene investigators in the capture, transmission, and quick comparison of shoeprints
. Researchers at the University of California, Irvine, are investigating statistical interpretation of shoeprint
evidence by developing an observational model that takes into account partial or obscured prints.
Johnson said he did well in his closing argument, as well as locating his own shoeprint
experts in the case.
Had the majority in Lee considered the case law involving gait (177) and shoeprint
(178) analysis, they would have found Justice Berger was correct.
, tyre marks, image and voice comparison, blood spatter
e assault was so violent that police revealed the victim was left with a shoeprint
on his face as well as extensive bruising.
(11) Physical evidence can range from something as seemingly simple as a shoeprint
(12) to something as complex as DNA.
The Ballymun-born crack addict is just 5ft 5 inches tall and left a bloody shoeprint
at the scene which helped police identify him with the crime.
Unlike other forensic disciplines with varying degrees of association (see Scientific Working Group on Shoeprint
and Tire Tread Evidence [SWGTREAD] 2006), friction ridge impressions are only individualized, excluded, or inconclusively compared.
A BLOODY shoeprint
matching the size worn by suspect Amanda Knox was found by the body of murdered British student Meredith Kercher, an Italian court heard yesterday.

Another task that will be performed is to replicate the enhancement of a digital image of a shoeprint
. Two approaches will be taken to compare which one enhances the image better.
Topics of presented papers include image and shape representation and recovery, including a paper on shoeprint
image retrieval by topological and pattern spectra, two-dimensional and three-dimensional analysis and visualization, including a range image feature extraction with varying degrees of data irregularity, medical and biomedical imaging, including computerized skin lesion analysis, object and event recognition, including non-linear approaches for the recognition of facial expression, image processing, including adaptive pre-filtering techniques for color image analysis, and applications, architecture and systems integration.
