Carlson CSI Software

DESIGNED BY LAW ENFORCEMENT... FOR LAW ENFORCEMENT!

Both easy-to-learn and easy-to-use -- all commands appear in one menu -- Carlson CSI offers a library of more than 40,000 automobile makes and models. This allows those recreating an accident scene to draw undamaged cars with only two field shots, based on the actual dimensions of the car. Illustrations of damaged cars can be created based on field shots of the damaged area only.
Draw linework in the field
Save field shots by extending or joining any point on existing lines

Accident Report as Text File based on car make and model
An upgrade from the earlier expansion of the original AIMS product prepared by Carlson Software and sold by Nikon Instruments, Carlson CSI Mobile and Office is designed specifically for police departments with valued input from the Cincinnati Police Department in its development.
