Photo Measure: real-time measurements from a photo

With Spike, your time to measure an object is reduced to minutes. Simply take a photo of the object you want to measure, such as a building or wall, using the Spike app and your smartphone or tablet. From that photo, capture measurements in real-time including height, width, area, length, and cut out area. Photos can be measured using the Spike app or the Spike Cloud. You can access your photos at any time to remeasure, eliminating the need to return to the location for additional measurements.

Spike’s photo measurement capability allows you to measure hard-to-reach objects that would have otherwise required additional equipment, labour or tools. All it takes is one person to capture all the measurements you need, and while at a safe location and distance. You can also correct for angles, using the alignment tool, to improve the accuracy of your measurements.

Measure from the app or from your desktop

Measure when and how you want using the Spike app on your smartphone or tablet, or from your desktop using the Spike Cloud. Whether you work out in the field or in an office, you can view or measure your photos at any time. Both the Spike app and cloud allow you to view, measure, export and share your Spike photos and measurements.

Take a photo using the Spike app and your smartphone or tablet while out in the field, and either measure on site using the app getting real-time measurements, or upload your photos to the Spike Cloud to measure back at the office. The Spike Cloud can also be used by other team members so that they can view or edit the measurements they need to complete their job tasks.

Export and share captured photos and measurements

All measurements are saved with the photo, and can be exported and shared with your team, colleagues or customers. Use the exported photo and measurements as photo verification for reports or estimates.
The Spike app and Spike Cloud allow you to select the export format for your needs. From the Spike app you can export photos and measurements as a JPG, PDF, Spike file (XML), or KMZ. Spike files can be shared and edited between devices running the Spike app, and KMZ files can be imported into popular GIS tools, such as Google Earth. Photos that have been uploaded to the Spike Cloud can be exported as a PDF, JPG (with measurements or image only) or a viewable URL.
