M.P. Evison & R.W. Vorder Bruegge. Forensic Science Communications, 10(2). (2008).


This paper describes the collection and initial application in research of a database of three-dimensional (3-D) facial images. The database is available for research in crime prevention and detection—with particular value in human identification and recognition—and is presently in use in research being undertaken by the authors and researchers in the United States, United Kingdom, and Canada.
