Visualizing Data Creates Compelling Evidence
Data visualization makes it easy for all the stakeholders involved in a dispute to understand critical concepts in the case. Compelling graphics underscore scientifically-backed insights with clarity. When engaged early in cases, we work in close alignment with our clients to meet their specific data collection and visualization needs. We follow the path that makes the most sense for their case, layering in the right visual elements at the right time.
Once ESi has helped you accurately gather important data, it is important to extract its value. We understand that this process must be done in a way that scales with the needs of your case to best help you in litigation We offer a variety of data analysis and visualization services to get the most out of your data and mitigate risky assumptions:
FARO 3D Scanning
Computed Tomography (CT) Scanning
Video Capture through Unmanned Aerial Systems
High-Resolution Photography and Videography
3D Animation & Virtual Reality
Through our practice groups, we provide understandable, explanatory courtroom visuals. ESi's detailed 3D scanning process allows for accurate 3D models and virtual representations of the real world. This produces impactful evidence by bringing new perspectives to critical data. At ESi, our causal research can lead to new findings and shed light on complex cases.
Strong Tools Lead to Strong Cases
Our technically accurate visualization tools and our multidisciplinary team of scientists, engineers, and technologists are often engaged early to explore scientific facts long before a trial ever even begins. In many cases, legal animations and visualizations can result in opposing counsel recognizing they may have a weakened position. Our early looks at data lead to visualizations that clearly communicate the situation.
The Best Visualization Options For Your Case
From static imagery of 3D laser scans to hybrid imagery, data fly-through movies, drones, and virtual reality, ESi provides you with an array of sophisticated data visualization choices. As a consulting company that takes on a collaborative approach, our technologists will help you choose the best options for your case. Working closely with your team, we determine the best path forward to communicate to key stakeholders what the data reveals – from members of your legal team all the way through to jurors.
Science should impact and inform your choices, from inception through meditation or trial. While engineers and scientists understand specific aspects of your case in excruciating detail, lawyers bring an in-depth view of the law. Trial graphics bridge the gap between these two areas of expertise and provide a solid foundation from which to build your case. In our experience, the most successful outcomes occur when the technical expert’s opinions, legal arguments, and data analysis are supported by factual data illustration. Data visualizations allow for a “seeing is believing” mindset to be brought to a case and become the basis for broadly informed decisions.
One example of the importance of data visualization is the way it can be used for accident reconstruction. Partnering with a data visualization consultant utilizing forensic animations can help increase a juror’s speed of comprehension of complex cases with multiple moving parts, human factor assessments, or highly technical terminology. Our team has diverse and extensive experience using data visualization tools and is trained in visual data analytics and trace evidence analysis. Our wide variety of data collection methods and high-quality visuals lead to compelling cases.
