Measure Tools v188.8.131.52 – Windows Phone Xap
‘Measure Tools’ allows you to measure the distance of an object (building, tree, person …) and its height. This is done by combining data from the motion sensor of your windows phone device and some trigonometry.
‘Measure Tools’ supports European and Anglo-American unit types (meters, centimeters, inches, and feet).
The usage of this tool is simple but yet it’s powerful:
1. Adjust your phone to the height of the measurement level (the height, you hold your phone), the “eye height”.
This only need to be done once and per default is set to 175cm / 65 inches.
2. Point your phone at the ground of the object you want to measure the distance.
The important point is aiming the camera at the GROUND, NOT the object or the wall. (i.e. In order to measure the distance from someone, aim at his shoes).
The distance is displayed immediately – press the shutter of the phone camera (or tap the camera icon) to store the distance.
3. Now point at the objects highest point and press the shutter of the phone camera again (or tap the camera icon on the command bar).
The height of the object is displayed.
