“PC-Rect is a program for the rectification of photographs. Rectification is the transformation of a photograph oblique to a surface into a plan view, like a map. The program allows the user to rectify photographs of surfaces which are close to being planar, such as roadway surfaces at accident scenes. As a result of the rectification, an image view normal to the surface (a plan view for horizontal surfaces) is created. This makes it possible to view all distances in the planar surface true to scale and angle … in addition it is possible to load and rectify videos with PC-Rect.”
Paint markings may have been placed on the roadway to identify points of rest of vehicles and other physical evidence.
Those measurements can also be gotten from a site laser scan.
The rectified image(s) is aligned with an aerial photograph and/or analysis drawing.
