    Abstract

    A simple and accurate method is presented for the preparation of transparent footwear prints for use as comparison standards. The technique employs the use of transparent sheets of clean-up film and fingerprint powder. The method has proven to be a valuable aid in forensic science cases that involve the examination and comparison of questioned two-dimensional footwear prints.
