Crime scene panoramas  NOV 28 2011

Over the past two years, the NYPD has been taking panoramic images of crime scenes in an attempt to better record the evidence.

Each panorama takes between 3 to 30 minutes to produce, depending on the available light, and is added to a database where detectives can access it. Before the switch to the Panoscan, crime scene images sometimes took days to process. Now, soon after the photos are posted, investigators can point and click over evidence from a scene that they might have missed in the hectic hours after the crime.
