Datasets & Tools

Forensic Science Research Datasets & Tools

The following CSAFE and NIST datasets are available to forensic scientists and researchers. Some datasets are free, while others are available for a fee. We invite you to use these resources to help with accurate evidence analysis techniques.


CSAFE Forensics Portal (coming soon!)

Will host steganography images as well as imaged hard drives


Bulletr Package

Analyze bullet lands using nonparametric methods. We provide a reading routine for x3p files and a host of analysis functions designed to assess the probability that two bullets were fired from the same gun barrel.

Cartridgesr Package

This package is a tool to compared cartridge case images.  The software reads, pre-processes and aligns images, computing a similarity measure and a probability of obtaining a higher score by chance. The goal is to provide objective measures that will help in inferring if two cartridge cases were fired from the same gun.

Handwriter R Package and Shiny App for Handwriting Analysis

*Coming Soon*

Please contact us with any questions or concerns that arise when using these resources.
