Forensic GIS - Investigation, Litigation and Using GIS in the Courtroom

Just the facts

The use of GIS methods in forensic science has exploded in recent years.  Brian Brill, a small town ski patroller, needed better tools to conduct investigations and geographically map his ski mountain.  With a GIS degree from the University of Denver, Brill started Mountain Graphix, a firm that specializes in accurate 3D computer reproductions of incident scenes and expert support to give lawyers the critical edge in deposition and in court. 

In this webinar you will learn

  • How GIS is used in legal investigations
  • The admissibility and presentation of GIS data in court
  • Recent advances in forensic GIS and what’s to come

More details

Mountain Graphix founder Brill coupled his interest in computer science with GIS tools and skills learned at the GIS department of the University of Denver.  The GIS program prepares students to strategically solve real-world problems and come up with cutting-edge solutions through a combination of technology and business skills. GIS students will learn the nature of geographic data while recognizing the appropriate applications of GIS technology to solve spatial issues. A Master of Science in Geographic Information Sciences (GISc) is available entirely online to students seeking advanced GIS training. University College also offers a graduate certificate in GIS both online and on campus at the University of Denver.
