Dr. James I. Ebert, Certified Photogrammetrist (ASPRS), has over 31 years experience in the analysis, evaluation, measurement, and mapping of data contained in photographs and other images, in all areas of forensic investigations and litigation.
Ebert & Associates, Inc. specializes in developing and supporting scientific legal arguments based on information derived from both ground-based and aerial photographs and other sorts of images (video, digital, etc.), and mapped information.
