Facial biometric tool


Animetrics introduces the ForensicaGPSTM, 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' ForensicaGPS translates low-resolution 2D facial images from a digital photo or video frame into a 3D image using Animetrics' patented 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 FaceRTM 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.
