Abstract

Accuracy and precision are two key measurement components. Accuracy relates to a confidence level in similarity between known and measured values, and precision relates to similarity between repeated measures of the same standard. Measurements from spattered bloodstains interpolated within a mathematical framework make it possible to determine a blood source area of origin within three-dimensional space.
