The Forensic Mapping System is used at Crash/Crime Scenes and other officially related investigations to electronically capture scene and evidence data.
These four components make up the Forensic Mapping System: ♦Total Station ♦Prism ♦Data Collection Device (can be onboard) ♦Mapping/Diagramming Software
There are some additional components that make the system complete. The total station tripod provides a fixed base for mounting the total station. The prism pole on the other hand provides a fixed prism support system and makes it easy for you to determine the prism/target height. You also need a way to establish communication between the total station and the data collector. In most cases this will be accomplished by using a cable but newer instruments and data collectors offer Bluetooth as an option.
