Modern possibilities of digital photogrammetry during 3D modelling of skeletal corpses. Introduction of novel method of data collection and 3D modeling of skeletal corpses and investigation sites using data obtained by standard photography technique. Comparison of results with commonly available methods and software for processing of digital photogrammetry. See the SOURCE PHOTOGRAPHS and resulting interactive 3D MODEL (please download to enjoy all capabilities of the model, this interactive PDF has to be downloaded; it doesn't work well if opened in some browsers).

 

 

Practival training includes:

10 minute DETECTION OF CONTEMPORARY CONTAMINATION on the surface of bones.
3D modelling
Sampling and sample preparation
