geoFOR: Where Geospatial Information Meets Forensic Science

This research addresses the lack of a robust dataset for examining and improving methods to determine the postmortem interval (PMI) in forensic investigations. Our app was made for you as a practitioner to help develop our knowledge and improve the PMI methods.
