Forensic Image Analysis - from Interpol
In response to a European reader's question, I dug this old link out of the archives. It's a document produced by Interpol back in 2001. Even though it's a bit dated, the references and the definitions are still valid and quite helpful.
As far as the question, it had to do with measuring the height of a person using Photoshop CS3's measurement tools. Problem: the suspect was in motion throughout the entire clip. Getting the "true height" can be tricky. Check out Figure 9 in the linked document.
