Animetrics introduced ForensicaGPS, a powerful new facial biometric tool for local, state and federal law enforcement. ForensicaGPS empowers law enforcement to swiftly and accurately identify criminal suspects, even from a low-resolution photo or video surveillance. Its advanced facial forensic tools enable law enforcement to analyze and compare multiple images for faster, more precise identification of suspects.
Animetrics is partnering with leading law enforcement technology solutions providers DataworksPlus and BI2 Technologies to deliver ForensicaGPS to police and sheriff’s departments in the U.S. Internationally, Animetrics is teaming with European law enforcement technology distributors UNIDAS Germany and UMC Forensics GmBH Switzerland. The pinpoint accuracy of Animetrics’ facial identification and forensic analysis application has made it the law enforcement solution of choice for the Zurich Forensic Police Department in Switzerland. ForensicaGPS is also being installed in police departments in the Middle East including Qatar, UAE and Saudi Arabia.
Animetrics’ ForensicaGPS translates low-resolution 2D facial images from a digital photo or video frame into a 3D image using Animetrics' face recognition technology. ForensicaGPS's unique facial creation and image quality enhancement tool converts photos and video frames of a person’s face into "ID ready" images including facial pose correction. This makes it easier for victims to identify suspects or for law enforcement to compare the images against mug shots within Animetrics FaceR Identity Management Solution (FIMS), correction facilities and criminal databases or third-party facial recognition systems.
For more accurate identity matching, ForensicaGPS can analyze and compare up to five images of a suspect. Its special forensic tools allow metric analysis of face similarity scoring, as well as 2D or 3D visualization of facial structure, geometry and texture. The software’s precise comparative analysis includes identifying features such as scars, moles, tattoos and distance measurements between facial features.
Animetrics' FACEngine technology is the advanced algorithm engine behind all of Animetrics' facial recognition and face creation systems. This integrated facial recognition technology renders accurate and useful 3D avatars from 2D images and video, even if the facial image is not "straight on."
ForensicaGPS is available for law enforcement agencies and departments today at http://www.animetrics.com/ or through Animetrics' network of law enforcement technology solutions partners.
