Measure Height 2.6 APK
Fundy Android

You should be standing perhaps twice as far away from theobject as you estimate its height to be. Preferably you are onlevel ground at the same elevation as the base of the object.Allthe commands in the app are on the sliding menu bar in the centerof the screen, When the app opens, the orange button 1 is shown.Scroll the menu down for the other options.Tap the orange buttonmarked '1) record the angle'. The measured angle and the locationwhere you are standing should then appear written over the orangebutton. Your observer position is now marked on the lower map witha yellow dot.Now scroll down until the orange Button 2 ivisible.Youwill locate the object on the map by sliding the map until theobject is in the center. Then tap Button 2. The object lo0cationshould now be marked in yellow on the screen.To calculate theheight estimate, scroll down past the orange buttons. The height,distance away, and angle of measurement will appear written in thewhite box just below on the scrollable center menu.The heightestimate depends somewhat on the variability of the GPS positions,which only claim to be within 10 m of true location. Most often,they seem to be within 3 m of true position. Note: For the GPSlocation settings to function accurately, the Location setting mustbe set to Use Satellite Location on the Location settings of yourphone. It may take a couple of minutes till the satelliteconnection is established properly and you must wait. You can checkwhether it has a satisfactory signal by starting Google Maps first,and checking that your location appears on the screen as a bluetriangle.Because it hogs battery power, the Satellite Locationsetting should be turned off after you finish using the app, unlessyou choose to leave it on for other apps.
