The DC Chapter of ACM SIGGRAPH would like to thank Christy Spangler, an animator for the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB), for her insightful lecture on forensics reconstruction animation. Christy discussed how she uses various data sources such as photos, diagrams, photogrammetry, and point cloud data to create forensics animations of accident scenes. Her animations are created using Autodesk Softimage, Adobe Illustrator, along with other specialized applications. Christy showed several animations from various cases she has worked on which were intriguing yet disturbing due to the nature of the events. Thanks again to Christy and we look forward to having here return in the future!
