The Scotsman: Scots asked to take pictures of their footwear to catch criminals

The Scotsman: Scots asked to take pictures of their footwear to catch criminals. “The University of Dundeeā€™s Leverhulme Research Centre for Forensic Science (LRCFS) is undertaking the largest ever study into the variation in footwear marks made by the same shoes across different surfaces and activities so the variation observed can be used to explore links between the shoe and the mark it makes. To do this, they are asking thousands of individuals to take part in a large-scale citizen science project by taking pictures of their footwear and the marks they make.”
