Scene mapping tool.

 

ETA there are several different models and I don't know which one that is or its' capabilities but the one I have seen used can map everything within a 100 yard radius down to the millimeter. They can set it up in several spots and get a 3D rendering of the entire crime scene. The detectives love it because it saves them a crap ton of time documenting the location of items in a scene and let's them "walk" through the entire scene at a later time.

That looks like the newest generation of what Lon said. The unit I had experience with was called a "Total Station". You can plot out points for scene mapping, and even create 3d models of the scene, and recreate crashes.

Yeah, that is the old version. The newer ones have built in digital cameras. With computer software and being placed in 3 positions at minimum at the crime scene it will render a 3D model on the computer. I'm not super familiar with it but got to see it when the cops played with it at the station. It was sensitive enough that you could count coins on a table in the 3D model.

I knew they used this technology for mapping caves and caverns, but I didnt know they were mapping crime scenes. Thats cool stuff right there.
Although its not the same thing, I use google earth all the time with my job. It can sometimes save me a daylong trip to a site. I can see where this technology can be invaluable to a crime scene detective.
