What kind of software program (name) are they using here to make the map of D.P. and limo visible?
Paul JFK Numbers
This is what I know about the software seen on screen (I also have info about the previous workflow). Something funny happened, during a weekend I was watching the laser measurement part again and only then I noticed:
"Hey, that is Mike McCormick (our generous benefactor), the guy that called me a few days ago!".
I was so freakin' curious about that software that I extracted several frames from the DVD, but the software name was not readable (too blurry), so I downloaded a de-blur application:
alas, still could not make out the name of the app. On Monday I sent an e-mail to Mike asking him. See attached screenshot. I forwarded to you the e-mail message with his reply and detailed explanations.

I now right?....look at the autopsy point - how does that come out at the throat?
and they still call it the back of the neck --It's a farce
Shaw Trial 1969 | Col. Pierre Finck
BY MR. OSER:
Q: I will ask you the question one more time: Why did you not dissect the track of the bullet wound that you have described today and you saw at the time of the autopsy at the time you examined the body? Why? I ask you to answer that question. A: As I recall I was told not to, but I don't remember by whom. Q: You were told not to but you don't remember by whom? A: Right.
Q: Could it have been one of the Admirals or one of the Generals in the room? A: I don't recall. Q: Do you have any particular reason why you cannot recall at this time? A: Because we were told to examine the head and the chest cavity, and that doesn't include the removal of the organs of the neck.
Q: You are one of the three autopsy specialist and pathologists at the time, and you saw what you described as an entrance wound in the neck area of the President of the United States who had just been assassinated, and you were only interested in the other wound but not interested in the track through his neck, is that what you are telling me? A: I was interested in the track and I had observed the conditions of bruising between the point of entry in the back of the neck and the point of exit at the front of the neck, which is entirely compatible with the bullet path.
Q: But you were told not to go into the area of the neck, is that your testimony? A: From what I recall, yes, but I don't remember by whom. Q: Did you attempt to probe this wound in the back of the neck? A: I did.
Q: With what? A: With an autopsy room probe, and I did not succeed in probing from the entry in the back of the neck in any direction and I can explain this. This was due to the contraction of muscles preventing the passage of an instrument, and if I had forced the probe through the neck I may have created a false passage. Q: Isn't this good enough reason to you as a pathologist to go further and dissect this area in an attempt to ascertain whether or not there is a passageway here as a result of a bullet? A: I did not consider a dissection of the path. Q: How far did the probe go into the back of the neck? A: Repeat the question.
Q: How far did the probe go into this wound? A: I couldn't introduce this probe for any extended depth. I tried and I can give explanations why. At times you cannot probe a path, this is because of the contraction of muscles and different layers. It is not like a pipe, like a channel. It may be extremely difficult to probe a wound through muscle. Q: Can you give me approximately how far in this probe went? A: The first fraction of an inch.
Q: If you had dissected this area, Doctor, wouldn't you have been able to ascertain what the track was, as you have described in this courtroom, without dissecting it? A: I don't know. Q: You don't know? A: I don't know. Wounds are different in one case from another, and I did not dissect --
Q: Let me ask you this, Doctor: Let me ask you whether or not in dealing with this particular back of the neck wound, as you describe it, whether you dissected the skin area, took a cross-section of the skin, submitted that to microscopic examination, to ascertain whether or not there was any singed area or burnt area as a result of a high speed bullet passing through the skin? Did you or did you not do that?
A: I remember removing skin at the entry at the back of the neck, or I was present when this was done, and microscopic examination was made of this wound of entry.
