Cyber Sleuth

Cyber Sleuth

In this lesson, learners use a Web-based customized version of ImageJ to investigate the properties of digital images as they relate to forensic science. Several images are taken from criminal evidence (ATM documents, license plates, etc.), but require image enhancement to reveal full detail. A set of micrographs of hair samples is also provided, and, after classifying and measuring the samples, students are able to identify the suspect most likely to have been at the crime scene.
