Forensic Mapping in the process of using electronic surveying equipment to measure evidence and points of interest at vehicle collision scenes. Accurate scene mapping and scale diagrams are also the backbone of a proper crash investigation. Distances, speeds, and times are all determined from diagrams of the scene. If the scene is not properly measured and documented, then the resulting speeds, distances, and times will be rendered inaccurate.
Crash Tech's Reconstructionists are specially trained and certified in Forensic Mapping. When hiring Crash Tech Reconstruction Services, you can rest easy knowing that our experts have the training, equipment, and expertise to measure and clear the scene accurately, quickly, and safely.
Crash Tech's investigators use state-of-the-art mapping equipment, which allows them to measure crash scenes without the need to close roadways or travel lanes. Our Nikon total stations are all reflectorless, which allows our investigators to measure a scene without needing an assistant to enter the roadway with a prism pole. Not only does this cut reduce or eliminate errors from a pole man, but it also allows Crash Tech investigators to arrive on scene, set up, be completed with the measurements, and off the scene in a fraction of the time.
Nikon is an industry leader in optics and lenses. The primary function of the Nikon Total Station is to measure distances, angles, and heights. It is able to do this by emitting laser beams to a target and detecting light reflected off it.
Nikon Total Stations are able to measure distances to an accuracy of 7 - 11 hundredths of an inch, and angles the width of pencil lead at over half of a mile.
