Easy and Accurate Crime Scene Diagrams
For over 20 years, The Crime Zone software has been the best choice for investigators and law enforcement officers who need to draw crime scene diagrams. It's fast and easy to draw accurate, realistic, 2D and 3D views of any crime scene that are ideal for courtroom presentations. The latest version of Crime Zone has even more tools for investigators, including high-definition, 3D graphics*, satellite image clean-up and draping over terrain, 3D evidence placards, and an easy-to-use 3D body poser. Since Crime Zone is also ideal for drawing crash scenes, you only need one diagramming application.
Completely Accurate - Your crime scene drawings are always as accurate as your measurements. The Crime Zone is a true, vector-base CAD application with accuracy16 places to the right of the decimal point.
Widely Accepted for Courtroom Exhibits -Thousands of police officers and Crime Scene investigators have used diagrams and animations created with The Crime Zone and The Crash Zone in their courtroom presentations.
More Ways to Measure - Whether you take manual measurements, use photogrammetry, or bring in data points from laser measurement devices like total stations, Crime Zone can handle it.
Use Point Clouds - Add CZ Point Cloud™ (available separately) to access powerful tools for creating forensic diagrams from the point cloud data captured by 3D laser scanners. Click here to learn more.
Easy to Learn -Unique toolboxes and "Wizards" let you draw building outlines, draw 3D stairs and ramps, and create complex streets and intersections with just a few clicks.Only The Crime Zone has them! More than 70 training movies are included that show you exactly how to draw.
2D and 3D Symbols - Much of the drawing work is done for you with the thousands of pre-drawn symbols, including furniture, trees, weapons, cabinets, animals, clothing, vehicles, and more. Just a few mouse clicks can place a symbol at any size, rotation and color.
It's easy and fast to create crime scene diagrams!
Powerful Drawing Tools -The Crime Zone includes all the drawing and editing commands you need to construct a 2D/3D diagram, whether it's a simple sketch or a complex reconstruction. It also includes more than 100 custom line types and . Click here to learn more about drawing features.
Amazing 2D/3D Body Poser -The unique Body Poser toolbox lets you give a body exactly the right pose in 2D and in 3D drawings. Just point and click to select gender, height, and a basic pose, such as running or sitting. Drag each joint and limb to the desired position and then change skin color and clothes color to match the scene. You can even save poses to use them again later!
Display Aerial Maps - Bring in geo-referenced images from Microsoft's Bing™ Maps, Google Maps™, or other aerial photographs to use as a background or to trace over. Import photographs from digital cameras in .bmp, .jpg, or .wmf formats. Place photos anywhere in your diagrams to show evidence, buildings, and more. Use digital images as a background or to show a vertical surface in a 3D view, such as a road sign or the front of a building. Use image draping to match a satellite image to 3D point data for an accurate 3D view of the terrain at a scene.
Easy Animations!Put your 2D and 3D crime scene diagrams in motion using The Crime Zone’s new 3D Animation Tools. You can use animations to show the motion of any symbol, such as a bullet trajectory or a vehicle crash. It’s the easiest way to create accurate animations of crime and crash scenes! Use the new Moving Camera feature to place the camera on an object that moves through the scene, like a person walking through it or a driver in a vehicle.Click to learn more.
Compatible With Laser Devices, Including 3D Scanners - Import measurement data from Laser Technology devices and most total stations made by Topcon, Sokkia, Nikon AIMS, Leica and more. For even faster drawings, use Pocket Zone data collection software to capture all your measurements at the scene! Pocket Zone lets you use your Pocket PC to collect measurements directly from your total station or Laser Technology device and generate your drawing at the site. Add the new CZ Point Cloud module (available separately), and Crime Zone users can create accurate, 2D and 3D diagrams from the point cloud data commonly produced by 3D laser scanners. (CZ Point Cloud is available separately.)
Accurate 3D diagrams with just a few mouse clicks!
One Click 3DWith just one mouse click you can see your scene in 3D and view it from any angle. It's much easier to draw in 2D, so you create your crime scene drawing there. The complex 3D scene is automatically created for you in the background.
Powerful 3D tools let you adjust the elevation of objects, show signs and evidence on walls, align vehicles to sloped roadways, construct bullet trajectories, and create complex 3D surfaces.
Ideal for Drawing Crash Scenes - The Crime Zone is also a complete crash scene diagramming program. It includes many crash reconstruction formulas, a slope calculator, vehicle specifications database, the ability to create and share templates of intersections, and much more. The Crime Zone and The Crash Zone are essentially the same program. You just select the program name you prefer.
