iPhotoMeasure is a software program from DigiContractor Corp. that transforms any digital camera into an accurate measuring tool. It is a simple, fast way to collect, send, print and archive complex measurement projects.
The iPhotoMeasure program comes with DigiTargets, which are placed in any area you want to photograph/ measure. The DigiTarget provides the software with an accurate scale to base its measurements. If you want clients to take the photo, you simply e-mail or fax the DigiTarget to them, or they can download it for free by using iPhotoMeasure's link.
To use the device, take a digital photo, open the photo in the iPhotoMeasure program and select the DigiTarget in the picture for reference. The software automatically measures anything in the photo with 95 percent to 99.5 percent accuracy.Test your management mettle
