About this Unit
This online unit is designed to provide an in-depth knowledge of scientific and forensic imaging. Forensic digital imaging serves important functions within forensic science for the purpose of scene and item documentation, detection and enhancement of forensic evidence, and as a means of communicating forensic observations and interpretations. The unit includes modules covering the following areas: physics of light, colour and optics; forensic photographic lighting techniques; image recording systems; image processing; and principles of forensic photography and imaging. This unit is taught by the University of Lausanne, Switzerland, as part of a collaborative venture between Western Sydney University and the University of Lausanne.

Special Requirements - Essential Equipment
