Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


In previous work on the MsSAM (Methods to Support Shared Analysis for Mobile Investigators) project, we presented an initial prototype device to be used to support evidence recovery on a crime scene. Using some of the findings from this and combining it with other work for minimal interaction, and shared awareness for strategic field operations, we proposed a system that would support efficient recovery of forensic data from the field with a simple easy-to-use interface which has the same 'look and feel' on a variety of hardware platforms. We then tested this with a group of final year Crime Scene Science students with encouraging results. We then present how this could be used to support real-time, online, multiple investigator collaboration.
