Session 1:  Cellphone Call and Tower Mapping for Investigations.
1:00pm - 3:45pm

For criminal cases, Prosecutors are now routinely obtaining Court approval to analyze a Defendant's cellphone call records, and Defense Attorneys are similarly obtaining records to verify the Prosecutor's information, or to provide an alternate analysis and conclusion as to the Defendant's location immediately prior to or after a criminal incident.

In civil cases, both sides are also obtaining records to determine the pre-incident locations of all parties. These records are obtained from the cellphone companies, NOT downloaded from cellphones. This session will provide an introduction regarding cellphone record analysis, location mapping, and how such information may support investigations and traffic crash or crime scene reconstruction.

To be very clear: This presentation WILL NOT DISCUSS cellphone downloads or cellphone forensic extraction hardware/software. 

What Attendees Will Learn:

  • How cellphones, towers and antennas work, and why it matters in an investigation.
  • What a cellsite looks like.
  • How to obtain Call Detail Records (CDR) from cellphone companies.
  • How to analyze Call Detail Records to obtain call dates, time, durations, and cellphone tower locations.
  • How to map cellphone tower locations and make mapping exhibits manually or semi-automatically.
  • Typical limitations of Call Detail Records analysis and mapping efforts
  • Differences between CDR mapping, “Tower Dumps,” and the E-911 System.
  • Utilization of commercial software designed specifically for CDR analysis and mapping.
  • How to organize all records, documents, maps and exhibits for testimony use.

The presentation will start with an extensive PowerPoint illustrating cellphone technology and tower designs, cellphone communications history, and typical analysis workflow. As time allows, a hands-on exercise will be conducted to map actual cellphone records.

Attendees do not need to bring any equipment; however, those wishing to participate in the hands-on exercise should bring a computer with Microsoft Excel and Google Earth installed. 

Session 2:  Pre-Conference at Night
(You must participate in the 4pm classroom session in order to participate in the outdoor session starting at 7pm.)

  Part 1: 4:00pm - 5:00pm (classroom)
Part 2: 7:00pm - 9:00pm (outdoors)

At the 2017 Conference, also held in Cocoa Beach, Robert offered something completely different for the Pre-Conference, a nighttime photography class. It was so popular we are presenting it again this year. We all know a picture is worth a thousand words but, even with the highest quality camera, nature, and other forces, can interfere and impact the quality of work you provide to your clients. This seminar can change that.

  • Basic camera functions; “Manual” vs. “Automatic” settings.
  • The importance of a proper photographic effort for investigations.
  • Recording images in difficult lighting conditions.
  • Ambient Light photography technique.
  • Painting with Light photography technique.
  • Extreme close-up/macro photography.
  • When to use photo editing software

Part 2: Topics to be Demonstrated - Outdoor Field Exercise:

  • Low-power flash and High-power flash.
  • Time Exposures.
  • Ambient Light.
  • Painting with Light.
  • Oblique Light
