We recently updated the Spike iOS and Android apps with the new Point-to-Point Measurement tool that allows you to measure the distance between two objects. Simply aim Spike at the first object, such as the side of a house, and take a photo. Then, aim at your second object, such as a tree or fence, and take a photo. Spike then calculates the distance between those two objects.
“We’re especially excited about this new tool because it allows us to better serve multiple markets, including signage, real estate, insurance and construction,” says Jeff Ross, chief marketing officer of ikeGPS. “We’re already receiving positive feedback from our current users about how the Point-to-Point tool gives them more flexibility in capturing the measurements they need.”
Similar to what you’ve come to expect from Spike, the Point-to-Point tool allows you to work quickly and capture hard-to-reach measurements from a safe distance. Beyond those benefits, the Point-to-Point tool also captures the linear distance for vertical and horizontal measurements, and it eliminates the need to use the alignment rectangle to correct for angles. Measurements are not restricted to single planes.
For more Point-to-Point inspiration, take a look at the gallery below to see how you can capture linear measurements. You can also find detailed instructions on how to use the Point-to-Point tool in this article from our Spike Support Center.
