    Significance and Use

    4.1 Processed images are used for many purposes by the forensic science community. They can yield information not readily apparent in the original image, which can assist an expert in drawing a conclusion that might not otherwise be reached.

    4.2 This guide addresses image processing and related legal considerations in the following three categories:

    4.2.1 Image enhancement,

    4.2.2 Image restoration, and

    4.2.3 Image compression.

    1. Scope

    1.1 This guide provides digital image processing guidelines to ensure the production of quality forensic imagery for use as evidence in a court of law.

    1.2 This guide briefly describes advantages, disadvantages, and potential limitations of each major process.

    1.3 This international standard was developed in accordance with internationally recognized principles on standardization established in the Decision on Principles for the Development of International Standards, Guides and Recommendations issued by the World Trade Organization Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Committee.
