  • Looking for free scene diagramming software

    Hello! I am trying to find some software for basic diagramming of accident/crime scenes. This software does not have to be top of the line because it is for basic documentation (distances, location of evidence, etc.).

    Oh, yeah...It must be free!

    Any suggestions?

    Thank you!

      For outdoor incidents I've been known to make a screen shot from an aerial photograph. I open it in Photoshop where I usually re-size the pic to a max. 7.5" width, remove the color converting it to grayscale and then draw on it and type on it to give a basic overview. The honcho's were quite excited with my talents(?) in this arena and I now find myself doing them for all of the guys in my district on an "as needed" basis.

      Mac makes this easy and I'm married to a talented graphic artist/designer who taught me a few tricks. It's really not difficult but I've no clue how to do it on a P.C.

        You are going to have a VERY difficult time finding diagramming software for free that is actually worth using. I'm not sure if there is anyting even out there. Microsoft Visio is probably about the cheapest solution I can think of. It's around $130.
        We use CadZone at my agency: http://www.cadzone.com/default.htm
        Not cheap, but pretty good.
        Anything worth shooting is worth shooting 3 or 4 times.

          Google SketchUp

          Solid Edge 2D

          Solid Edge reads and writes AutoCad and Microstation formats. This can save a lot of heavy lifting if you can access your jurisdiction's engineering department library of CAD drawings.
