  • Abstract:

    This paper is a case study that describes the production of 3D visualisations for forensic maps that were used in a fraud case. The production path is followed from identifying the sources of data, the acquisition of the data (Source); the creation of the various 3D visualisations (Make); and to the final report (Deliver). The various production processes are the acquisition of the data, the selection of software, data clean-up and preparation, the 3D mapping, and the writing of the report based on the analysis. The production path is based on supply chains and supply chain management using the Supply-Chain Operations Reference (SCOR) model as a guideline. Three distinct periods of interest to the investigation were identified and mapped. The aim of the paper is to illustrate the use of supply chains and supply chain management to guide the production of maps. Supply chain management can be used for any type of project whether small or very large and complex.
