Visual Diagnostics for Cartridge Case Impression Evidence

This research poster was presented at the American Academy of Forensic Sciences annual conference in 2023. An interactive poster is available for your viewing.

We were interested in creating diagnostic tools that help explain the behavior of automatic cartridge case comparison algorithms. Our results indicate that the visual diagnostics can be used to intuitively assess the similarity between two cartridge cases and predict the similarity score output by a comparison algorithm.
