    Abstract

    In bite mark analysis concern is expressed for the need to improve the precision in photographic evidence collection procedures. The use of a rigid ruler (which meets federal specifications) for scale, proper camera positioning in relation to the scale, and a method to evaluate the distortion in a two-dimensional print that records a three-dimensional object is suggested. Disregarding these factors makes metric bite mark analysis inappropriate.
