Updated Carlson CSI Office for Accident and Crime Investigations


New, Updated Carlson CSI Office Now Released
Companion Software to CSI Mobile for Accident and Crime Investigations

MAYSVILLE, Kentucky, U.S.A. (April 2013) – The all new, completely upgraded and revamped Carlson CSI Office was recently released. It is designed specifically for the needs of city, county, or state police departments or consulting firms engaged in accident or crime reconstruction.

CSI Office, Carlson Software Investigations for the office, is a companion product to Carlson’s data collection software for crash/crime investigation, CSI Mobile. Together they allow law enforcement personnel to see how accidents happened, reconstruct traffic accidents, measure and map crime scenes, and determine how criminals operated.

“We’ve worked closely with police officers to give CSI Office powerful forensic diagramming capabilities, yet kept it intuitive and easy to use,” said Bruce Carlson, president of Carlson Software.

Top new features in Carlson CSI Office include:

Carlson CSI Office 1.0 has new 3D viewer.

Carlson CSI 3D Viewer

–          Extensive vehicle spec database including 2013 model vehicles;

–          New Quick Import feature imports field data and creates scene drawing in one step;

–          New Points Editor allows users to edit point information and have the change occur in real time on computer screen;

–          New Design Palette enables creation of custom function groups and keeps them readily available. It also provides quick access to placing symbols, hatches, and color fills;

–          New Room Builder lets users create walls, doors, and windows and view the room in 3D. Walls can be created based off linework shot in the field. Walls, doors, and floors can be colored to match the scene;

Draw a chalk-like outline with new body outline function in CSI Office

New ‘body outline’ function

–          New Body Outline function allows you to draw a “chalk outline” style body. The body can be manipulated, including movement of arms, legs, and head, to fit the anatomy of a scene.

Other features of CSI Office include the ability to produce customized reports complete with photos placed on a mapped accident scene, an extensive Symbol Library that allows users to easily edit drawings with multiple “undos” and “redos” permitted, and an online word processor to speed production of accident narratives. CSI Office comes with IntelliCAD® built-in so no need to purchase CAD-specific software.

“On its own or together with CSI Mobile,” adds Carlson, “CSI Office can effectively and accurately reconstruct traffic accidents or crime scenes, complete with the capability for full 3D scene viewing.”
