Paper Abstract

Computer equipment originally designed to age progress photographs of missing persons is also being employed in cases requiring facial reproduction from skeletal remains. This process increases the interaction and communication between the artist and anthropologist to create rapid, realistic facial images and permits alternative images or modifications. Other uses, such as photographic superimposition, have been successful in comparing antemortem photographs with recovered crania and mandibles. Composite drawings from witness descriptions are also prepared or modified on the computer rapidly and accurately depending on the recall of the witness and the skill level of the artist interviewer.
