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


In this paper, we describe the design and development of mobile technology to support crime scene investigation. We briefly review the crime scene investigation processes, arguing that it is highly distributed. We then propose the use of a simple case-based reasoning (CBR) system to support some aspects of this activity, and a wearable computer to assist in data collection. The includes a user trial by practising crime scene investigators, and concludes with discussion of future work.
