The Criminal Justice Information Services (CJIS), division of the Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI), include in its strategic plan the creation of an Automated Dental Identification System (ADIS), a Post Mortem Dental Identification System.;This project aims at designing an end-to-end web-interface to meet the requirements of ADIS like Identification, Maintenance and Bridge Modules. In Identification Mode the subject record will be uploaded by the user and the match list is obtained as result. Maintenance Mode enables uploading of reference records and to populate the database with preprocessing data. Bridge Module enables researchers from other universities to use the database designed in WVU. A database is also designed to hold non-dental features like name, age, gender etc and dental features like preprocessing data.;This provides the FBI agents and the Forensic experts the ability to use ADIS from their office desks. This web interface provides an Identification Module, Maintenance Module and Bridge Module. (Abstract shortened by UMI.).
