Things to be keep in mind before measuring height and distance from Smart Measure Android App:
- Firstly, set the height, i.e height measure between the ground surface and your device camera location, as shown in figure below indicated as ‘h‘.
This Height would always vary depending upon who is holding camera device and how and in which angle the phone is carried. This step is very crucial to conclude if the measurement is correct or not. If the provided field is not written correctly you would get some funny results from it. For instance when i was measuring height of room it comes out to be more than a building, then after some time I found due to incorrect figure in height field. Also define H if you are standing above building or so.
- Secondly, don’t move while taking bottom and top part of the object.
