Summaries and Reviews description: Product Description: Forensic Visibility is an important text that, in simple terms, explains many subtle and complicated aspects of forensic visibility. It begins with a broad introduction to the human visual system, including visual detection, visual search, contrast threshold, background luminance, complex backgrounds, and eyewitness testimony. This is a fitting introduction for any professional looking for insight into this complex topic. Author Jim Harris, Sr. (along with co-author Jim Harris II) draws upon over 50 years in the field of visibility studies, including a prolonged tenure at the Visibility Lab at the University of California. He has served as an expert in over 1,000 cases involving the analysis of visibility issues in all types of accidents, each of which involved questions as to whether the parties involved would have been able to visually acquire information that would have allowed them to avoid the accident. This book covers chapters pertinent to accident reconstructionists, including visibility related to pedestrians and automobile accidents. What roles did intersection lighting and pavement luminance play? How reliable are distance estimates given by eyewitnesses? How does disability glare affect the system of the eye? These questions and more are discussed in detail. Also included in this book is a full chapter devoted to aircraft mid-air collisions. Harris has been retained as a litigation expert for over 120 midair collisions. Further chapters explore forensic photography and how to attain scene and photographic fidelity, as well as issues of resolution, camera type, monitor and printer calibration, linearity, light meters, and distance estimates from photographs. Forensic Visibility is an important addition to your library if you are an accident reconstructionist, insurance professional, lawyer, or any professional involved in cases with visibilty issues.
