What We Do

Established in 1989, 21st creates sophisticated 3D computer visuals for litigation. We are retained by counsel to create the 3-dimensional graphical presentation of expert opinion. We provide the technical support to create accurate and informing exhibits to better communicate the events in question.

Data Collection

We specifically provide the technology and expertise to collect 3D data. We utilize unmanned aerial vehicles (drones) and terrestrial laser scanners to measure and collect the scene and object dimensions. The accuracy of these methods varies; however, they can be as small as 1/8 of an inch.

Data Processing

We process this data accurately to create 2D diagrams for other experts to use in their analysis. We also create 3-dimensional computer models from this data to use in animations.
