Questions? Call us!


  Do you use a total station or 3D scanner?

Our Pocket Zone, data collection software, is ideal for mapping with a total station. If you capture point clouds with a laser scanner, CZ Point Cloud software is a MUST!

The Crash Zone - Version 9

Crash Scene Diagrams Made Easy

For nearly 20 years The Crash Zone has been the drawing program of choice for Crash  Reconstructionists and Law Enforcement Officers who need to accurately map crash scenes. The latest version of The Crash Zone has even more tools for investigators, including easy 3D animations, a vehicle specifications database, skid analysis and momentum calculations, and an easy-to-use 3D body poser. Crash Zone is also ideal for drawing crime scenes!

Have a laser scanner? Click here to use it with Crash Zone!



Completely Accurate - Your diagrams are always as accurate your measure- ments. The Crash Zone is a true vector-based application, with 16 decimal place accuracy. You can enter measurements manually, get data from photogrammetry, or use laser measurement devices like total stations and 3D scanners.

Widely accepted in court - Crash and Crime Scene Investigators know that an accurate diagram of the scene can make all the difference in their case. Thousands of Investigators and Crash Recon-structionists have used diagrams and animations created with The Crash Zone to help win their cases in court.


If you have an earlier version of Crash Zone or Crime Zone, you qualify for a low-cost upgrade.  
Call 877-769-5554 for information. Click here to see what's new in Version 9.



Want to show what REALLY
happened in a crash?

Use The Crash Zone to create
an accurate animation!

There is no guess work, the animation is
always based on your exact data points.



Crash Zone 9 includes:

Printed User's Manual        Comprehensive electronic help       70+ training movies
  NO annual maintenance fees!     FREE Technical Support - telephone, email, or chat!

Powerful Drawing Tools - The Crash Zone includes all the tools you need to construct a 2D/3D collision diagram, whether it's a simple sketch or a complex reconstruction. It also includes thousands of pre-drawn symbols of almost everything at a crash site, including vehicles, signs, trees, street lights, weapons, and animals. Click to learn more!

It's Easy to Learn -Unique toolboxes and "Wizards" let you draw complex streets and intersections with just a few mouse clicks. The Electronic Help and 70+ training movies show you exactly how to draw and animate.

Easy Animations! Put your 2D and 3D diagrams in motion using The Crash Zone's new 3D Animation Tools. Place Key Event Points to show changes in the vehicle's velocity and rotation, based on your exact measurements.  It's the easiest way to create accurate animations of crash and crime scenes! Click to learn more.

Crash Reconstruction Tools -  Use the multi-surface Skid Analysis tools to calculate pre-impact and post-impact speeds. Determine approach and departure angles of vehicles using the Momentum Angles toolbox. Plug the results of the Skid and Momentum Angles tools into the Momentum Calculator to determine vehicle speeds at impact. Import your measurement data into the Crush Calculator and estimate Equivalent Barrier Speed. Click to learn more!


View 3D scenes from any angle and elevation.

Crash Zone is also for Drawing Crime Scenes!

If you also draw crime scenes, The Crash Zone has all the features you will need, including powerful tools for drawing 2D and 3D rooms and buildings, ability to easily show blood spatter and other evidence on vertical surfaces, an accurate 2D/3D body poser, 3D animation, thousands of pre-drawng symbols of evidence, weapons, and more. Crash Zone and Crime Zone are essentially the same program, you can pick the name you prefer to use.


"Definitely, Great Software!" Trooper Ted Kocur, Nevada Hwy Patrol




One Click 3D!With just one mouse click you can see your scene in 3D and view it from any side! You just complete your drawing in 2D, where it's easy to draw, while the complex 3D scene is created for you in the background. If you want to do more, use the 3D tools to change the elevation of objects, show signs and evidence on walls, align vehicles to sloped roadways, generate profiles, construct trajectories, and create complex 3D surfaces. A powerful Body Poser feature with a 3D preview window makes it painless to pose bodies exactly the way you want them. With the new light source shading and vehicle reflectivity controls, your 3D views are more realistic than ever.

Easy Vehicle Database!Obtain vehicle specifications and a scaled outline for most vehicles by selecting them from an industry-standard database. The outline is drawn to exact specifications for length, width, center of mass, wheelbase, front and rear overhang. Easily stretch any of the detailed, 3D vehicle symbols to have the same size as the outline. Updates to the database are downloaded for free!

Compatible With Laser Devices - Ideal for forensic mapping! Import measurement data from Laser Technology systems and most total stations made by Leica, Topcon, Sokkia, Nikon AIMS, and more. For even faster drawings, use The Pocket Zone data collection software to capture all your measurements at the scene! Pocket Zone lets you use your Pocket PC to collect measurements directly from your total station or Laser Technology device and generate your drawing at the site. You leave the scene knowing you have accurately measured and recorded every point. Click to learn more.

Import Photos -Bring in geo-referenced images from Microsoft's Bing™ maps, Google Maps , or other aerial photographs to use as a background or to trace over. Import photographs from digital cameras in .bmp, .jpg, or .wmf formats. Place photos anywhere in your diagrams to show vehicle damage, body positions, evidence and more. Use digital images as a background or to show a vertical surface in a 3D view, such as a road sign or front of a building.

Training Widely Available!Training courses are available at colleges and institutes across North America, including The IPTM, Henry Lee Institute, Ontario Police College, Fox Valley College, UC Riverside, and many more. Check out our special Training Web Site to find trainers near you and see a list of upcoming classes. Click to learn more.

"You can't beat the capabilities for the cost! Crash Zone is easy to
learn and easy to use. It provides accurate, sharp looking
scaled drawings.  Animation and 3D are also simple to do!"
T. Shawn Deen, Rocky Mountain Investigative Services 

Most people agree, it's very difficult to create a 3D drawing on a 2D surface - like a computer monitor. In Crash Zone, you create your diagram with ease in 2D and click one button to view it in 3D! The generation of complex 3D objects and symbols is done for you in the background! You can view thescene from any vantage point and even do "walk-throughs", show evidence on walls, or place your own photographs to show vertical surfaces. Create 3D surfaces to show sloped roadways and easily align vehicles to the slope. Use The Crash Zone's 3D Animation tools to create fast and easy animations of the event - no expensive consultants needed!
