Mapping is a key component in many trials, but is only effective if done correctly.
From source data to location of sites and resolution issues for print to redaction – creating the right map for court is a tricky task. Serious consideration needs to be made if scenarios are to be explained effectively.
So how do we go about this?
Firstly it is important to break down the locations from the outset, so an overview map is of particular interest. Outline key areas and sites, remove all areas of no relevance, focusing the mind of the viewer on only what is essential and key to your argument.
Secondly, provide more focused maps of each key area. Increase the level of detail of important elements such as site locations, positions and access routes. Ensure as much detail is present but avoid cluttering and employ colour coding (when needed) to help define items and continuity.
Thirdly, provide highly detailed mapping around the specific incident and support this with media such as video, audio, infographics and timelines.
By using this three-pronged approach, the viewer is able to understand:
- The overall location of where the event took place
- Key elements directly relevant in the local vicinity
- Detailed location information focusing on the event site itself
