"One of the greatest challenges experts face when participating in capital defense mitigation is providing the jury with visual mitigating evidence. Sixty-five percent of the population are visual learners – so give them something to look at. Maps can literally provide a visual snapshot of what is happening in a defendant’s life and what mitigation factors influenced his/her life.

Testimony aided by digital mapping provides a persuasive means for presenting complex, community risk factors for criminal violence such as poverty, exposure to violence, lead exposure, community disorganization, gang activity, lack of role models and substandard education.  Such considerations of shaping influences are critical to a sentencing determination.
