This four day course will cover all of the award winning PhotoModeler features that make it a valuable measurement tool in the reconstructionist's tool box. The daily class schedule runs from 8:00am - 5:00pm. The course is certified for ACTAR CEUs. Key topics include, but are not limited to:

  • photography techniques
  • scene diagramming and mapping from photos
  • scene and crush measurements
  • evaluating accuracy and developing standard operating procedures
  • exporting to a CAD package for further enhancement and diagramming
  • measurements from single photos and/or photos from unknown cameras
  • photo-realistic surfacing for visualizations and rendering
  • nighttime photography and the use of sub-pixel marked, retro-reflective targets
  • orthophoto and rectified-photo generation
  • admission of photogrammetry and PhotoModeler into court

  • use of drones and UAV in accident reconstruction
  • uav flight planning & ground control points

Participants will complete many practical examples and finish with a field project that will have them work the project from the beginning (photography) to the end (CAD export). After completing the course, attendees can expect to be comfortable in using PhotoModeler and methods of photographing vehicles and collision scenes for this purpose. Attendees will receive a certificate to indicate that they have proven a base knowledge of PhotoModeler and have expertise to properly complete measurement projects.

Our course instructors are Dan Mills, a trained collision reconstructionist who has used PhotoModeler extensively while working with national transport authorities, and Tod Whitfield who has thirty one years as a police officer, finishing his career as a forensic specialist and Sergeant in charge of the lab for the Toronto Police Forensics Unit.
