Wikipedia states “Image analysis is the extraction of meaningful information from images; mainly from digital images by means of digital image processing techniques.”

Sometimes a witness will include one or more photos with their report to Florida Research & Investigations. Many times, a photo will tell you immediately what the witness was looking at, or not looking at. Sometimes, the witness’s claims do not match the photo evidence. By knowing what you are looking at or what you are not looking at will help you complete your case with the correct disposition and identification of the suspect object(s).
