Conference/Workshop:
American Academy of Forensic Sciences Annual Scientific Meeting
Published: 2019
Primary Author: Amy Crawford
Secondary Authors: Alica L. Carriquiry, Danica Ommen
Research Area: Handwriting

The goal of this presentation is to provide insights into which features of handwritten documents are important for statistical
modeling with the task of writer identification and to discuss how these features overlap with features that questioned document examiners typically
examine.
