A comparison of reverse projection and PhotoModeler for suspect height analysis
The purpose of this study was to compare the accuracy and precision between the Reverse Projection and PhotoModeler methods for suspect height analysis. Thirty analysts were assigned to measure the heights of three different suspects, one for each method, with the suspects having been recorded standing at three different distances in a scene. Reverse Projection yielded a greater range of error and tended to have higher standard deviations than PhotoModeler, but the overall accuracy between the two methods was found to be comparable. The majority of absolute measurement errors for both methods were less than 2 cm.
