TV Documentary on JFK Assassination Highlights Use of Leica ScanStation P20 in Shooting Scene Reconstructions 


As part of the investigation, Haag traveled to Dealey Plaza where he was joined by Tony Grissim of Leica Geosystems, a technical advisor for the Association of Firearm and Tool Mark Examiners. Using a Leica ScanStation P20, the team spent an entire day collecting laser scan data from the plaza and from inside the Texas School Book Depository (now known as “The Sixth Floor Museum at Dealey Plaza”) where the shooting is said to have taken place.

“With the scan data, once you go in and start either putting yourself in a particular viewpoint or taking some of those measurements, it’s pretty easy to begin knocking some of those [conspiracy] theories down … or see what is possible,” Haag said in an interview with Leica Geosystems.
