CSAFE TOOLS

Gain new, improved and repeatable methods and techniques for analyzing forensic evidence.

CSAFE researchers are developing open-source software tools, allowing for peer-reviewed, transparent software for forensic scientists and researchers to apply to forensic evidence analysis. These automatic matching algorithms provide objective and reproducible scores as a foundation for a fair judicial process. Our team is continuing to develop new tools for the forensic community to apply their work.

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
