5 Using rectangles to map the location and orientation of an item within a crime scene requires a nearby reference marker having sides at a right angle to each other (here shown as two walls). By knowing the distances of at least two points on the evidence item from each wall, the evidence item can be precisely placed at its original position if the crime scene needs to be reconstructed. 6 A straight line between two reference markers (designated 1 and 2) measures 10′ in length. The angle formed by that imaginary line and a line leading from Reference Marker 1 to the evidence item is 34°.
