Realworks Forensic and Trimble Reveal Scan Diagramming (Online)  

This is an independent study, self-paced course.

This online course will provide new users of Trimble Realworks Forensic and Reveal Diagramming software with the skills needed to complete a basic scaled crash or crime scene diagram based on the collected field data from either the SX10 or TX Series Scanner. We will introduce you to Realworks Forensic and cover topics such as registering and classifying the scanned data and the proper way to save and export files.

Using Reveal, you will learn how to build the scene in both “top down” and 3D perspectives; merge scanned data with survey point data; navigate helpful building tools; manage multiple layers and measurement logs; and add vehicle articulation, damage and crush. We will also show you how to create and manage code libraries that work with Virtual Total Station.
