Notable collaborations between CSAFE and NIST have resulted in the following joint achievements: new automated algorithms for bullet, shoeprint

When Richard became the Wine Director at The Little Nell in Aspen, Colorado, he had little problem filling in the large shoeprints

This color-illustrated textbook for students in forensics explains techniques, equipment, and materials for gathering evidence of fingerprints, shoeprints

Budding forensic scientists will use real techniques such as identifying fingerprints and shoeprints

Topics that may be explored include the importance of eyewitness testimonies (maybe someone on the train saw Fred commit the crime); alibis (maybe George was visiting other friends at the time the crime was committed); and collection of alternative types of physical evidence, such as shoeprints
