To explain how the “Forensic Data Analysis for Waste Trafficking Tool” published by the WasteForce project works, an instruction video has been published. The video shows examples of how the tool can support data retrieval and analysis in the area of illegal waste shipments.
The tool improves access to historic data to be used in future casework and can assist to obtain intelligence information. Data generated by forensic research contains information about vulnerability of specific waste streams for criminal activities, how it occurs, and how this can be detected.
The current tool is a prototype, based on Dutch cases only. To generate a broader dataset, it is recommended to link data systems from other forensic institutes throughout the EU and include them in this forensic tool.
The video is presented below.
