A database for toolmarks (named TRAX) and a database for footwear outsole designs (named REBEZO) have been developed on a PC. The databases are filled with video-images and administrative data about the toolmarks and the footwear designs. An algorithm for the automatic comparison of the digitized striation patterns has been developed for TRAX. The algorithm appears to work well for deep and complete striation marks and will be implemented in TRAX. For REBEZO some efforts have been made to the automatic classification of outsole patterns. The algorithm first segments the shoeprofile. Fourier-features are selected for the separate elements and are classified with a neural network. In future developments information on invariant moments of the shape and rotation angle will be included in the neural network.
