An Introduction to Digital Imaging
November 13 - 15, 2013
Sponsored by: Nebraska State Patrol Crime Lab (collaborating with Foray technologies)
This three-day course provides hands-on training focused on the basic concepts and techniques for analyzing forensic digital images. The class will deliver the firm foundation of digital imaging concepts analysts need to understand and convey digital image enhancement, as well as significant hands-on experience with the most commonly used image enhancement tools. Students will learn: how to scale digital images for accurate life-size outputs, the recommended procedures for enhancing various types of images for maximum image quality and contrast, how and when to apply different techniques to remove background noise, and how to enhance contrast to bring out image detail that is barely visible to the human eye. They will also prepare proof sheets, court exhibits and more. The class covers the fundamental forensic digital imaging concepts and how these concepts can aid in the investigative process; and participants will be asked to apply this learning in practical exercises using their own forensic images.
The instructor for the class is David Witzke. He has more than 20 years of digital imaging and AFIS experience, and is considered an expert in forensic digital image processing technologies, techniques and training. Register soon as class size is limited. Registration will close mid-October.
