The easiest way to find which way was a man, a fingerprint heels shoes on damp soil. Where looks sock, and where the heel. The size of the fingerprint pattern of the soles, the step length can be roughly judged on age, gender, growth and activity of the last man on the severity of them portable cargo, etc.
It is clear that prints sandals, shoes, sneakers and other «home» shoes rapidly lead to housing. In languid wading boots is also far from the village PT not go, a multi-day marches don’t do. Hiking shoes, on the contrary, can lead to deserted areas. Yes, and then, passing along the track, considering the length of the step, noting the frequency of stops and halts, finding traces from shot rigs, etc. can be concluded: first route were tourists or, on the contrary, oraculis light. Essentially’t lose track.
More difficult is the case, when the shoes has not clearly expressed soles (boots, handmade boots and Cuny). Yes and then you can decrypt the trail, if you know that sock on soft soil, especially when walking uphill, retracts into the soil a little deeper than the heel, so how exactly toe the man is repelled from the earth.
The shift of the soil, usually comes from the front of the track to the heel, and means in the direction opposite to the direction of movement.
On gentle slopes the distance between the prints in short, if people would like, and longer if you went down.
On steep and slippery slopes soles often slip, sliding fell under their soil, grass, moss, and small rocks down, leaving the corresponding rollers of the surface soils. With all of this if people would like, the distance between the prints are small, congresses — rare, with moderate length. And if down, then steps over longish, with a more extensive picture of slippage.
Drops Graziosi, stuck to the soles fall off the shoes while moving forward, and because of their sharp ends are oriented in the direction of movement of the pedestrian.
In cohesive soil on the walls of the deepest track you can see the vertical grooves or scratches, which are curved upper ends in the direction of movement.
Dry branches that interfere with the person during the transition, usually break off and discarded in the direction in which it moves.
On the surface of the frozen Graziosi and solid Nasta traces are surrounded by cracks, sharp edges which are oriented in the direction of movement.
The grass is usually accepted in the direction of movement of the person. And if it is still not straightened, means held here people far away could not.
When going through puddles and muddy areas of the earth people bassbin drags the water and stuck to the shoes Mus. Of course, what about puddles humidity traces higher than farther from it, and the number had fallen away gratisi many more. Drying of the residue and reducing gratisi with pinpoint accuracy indicate the direction in which left stepped in puddle man. Accordingly, the approaches from the opposite side of the puddle is usually dry and clean. And, again, the degree of drying of wet footprints and drying lumps of gratisi you can calculate how long back was this man.
People string jumping over pits and obstacles, usually leaves on the ground corresponding traces push and landing. And if he loses balance, and hand prints of either knee, aimed in the direction of movement.
The definition of «age» footprints in the summer. In the snowless season on the bare soil of the freshness of the trail reads the sharpness of prints, relief contours. If the traces left little water, on a Sunny day it be gleaming. After one or two day trail loses its brightness, relief, visibly dims, the water evaporates or soaks into the soil, platens gratisi dry up, become whitish.
Caught in the imprint of the earth lumps after 3-4 hours dry, lighter and begin to vary in shade from compressed soles, and therefore longer retaining water the bottom of the trail.
On the viscous soil after 2-3 hours on the day of the track appears crust on the surface which after 4-5 hours appear small, tradency, after a day or two individual soil particles are separated from the bottom of the trail, and after 2-3 days its contours begin to mutate and spread out. Heat and strong wind speed up the drying process and modifying the track.
If the fingerprint is found in a narrow layer dried Graziosi, you need to remember when was the last rain, and to estimate how much time will it take Mus dried to the observed state.
Freshness of trace evidence dew drops, whipped with foliage plants last person or animal, flattened and yet vypravilas grass. Such traces are kept less than 1-2 hours or less.
If podravshiysya through the wild man of the case broke off one or a few branches on the tree or Bush, it’s about time he did it, you can judge by the outward appearance of the foliage. First, she looks exactly like a living foliage on adjacent branches, But later gohnet, wilts and, in the end, quite dry, grey. Moreover, the hotter and drier weather is, the more it happens faster.
