Abstract The problem of searching for burial sites is an important issue for criminology, history, and archeology. The presently employed classical ground-penetrating radar (GPR) methods often yield equivocal results. Here, we report the results of our experimental study on the possible enhancement of the GPR methodology by introduction of the neural network to help localize the places of deposition of cadavers. The experiments, employing pig bodies as a model, yielded very promising results…
