- For example, point out of necessary information such as general location of accident, final positions of vehicles or establishing witness positions.
- Detailed photograph of the scene:
This may include detailed digital photographs & digital video footage of either the general layout of the scene, specific evidence found at the scene, or specific views such as a driver’s view or a witnesses view, typical compiled for large screen digital presentation at trial in a power point presentation.
- Detailed plan of the scene or proportional sketch:
Diagrams are typically compiled so as to clearly depict the general layout of the scene, including such factors as any physical evidence found at the scene, or factors that may have influence the accident, as well as for use in further evaluation of the case. All diagrams are compiled in Computer Aided Drawing (CAD) programs and can be presented to any scale and size format.
- Measuring of all relevant information:
It may be required that general or detailed measurements of the scene need to be taken, such as widths of lanes, driver or pedestrian’s line of sight, verifying distances of objects, recording positions of various evidential factors such as tyre marks, scrape marks, gouge marks and debris amongst others, or simply to accurately depict the layout of the scene.
- Time / space related observations & measurements:
Specific observation and measuring of a driver, pedestrian or witness’s line and or distance of sight at a particular position prior to or at the time of collision may be required in order to evaluate various factors such as reaction times or simply weather they were actually able to see various factors at various positions.
- General observations:
It may be required that observations be made as to the effect of the environmental factors such as sun positioning or wet surfaces as well as physical factors, such as the possible effect of the Horizontal and Vertical alignment of the road surface on the collision. Vehicular, pedestrian and traffic light patterns or functioning may also require analysis among many other factors
