About the Authors
  • The promotion of CCTV surveillance and identity cards, along with ever heightened security at airports, immigration control and institutional access, has seen a dramatic increase in the use of automated and manual recognition. In addition, several recent disasters have highlighted the problems and challenges associated with current disaster victim identification. Discussing the latest advances and key research into identification from the face and skull, this book draws together a wide range of elements relating to craniofacial analysis and identification. It examines all aspects of facial identification, including the determination of facial appearance from the skull, comparison of the skull with the face and the verification of living facial images. With sections covering the identification of the dead and of the living, it provides a valuable review of the current state of play along with the latest research advances in this constantly evolving field.

    • Draws together the many sub-fields relating to craniofacial identification, with applications to science, art and to multidisciplinary fields
    • Covers the identification of both the dead and the living, examining all aspects of facial identification including the verification of living facial images
    • Features contributions from leaders in the field, providing a valuable review of the current state of play in this constantly evolving field

    "... this volume comprises a useful overview of relevant subjects and concisely collates a vast number of techniques and cross-disciplinary literature. It is a mandatory and interesting read for beginners and holds value for established practitioners looking to refresh or broaden their research scope."
