When it comes to expressing dimensions on an image its pretty tough to do unless you can tag it with construction data on it. One way is to take images and then do it manually on your computer, but there are very few tools which can do that.
Measure Note for Windows Phone by Pascal Fresnay is one of those tools which actually make it easy for anybody to take a snapshot on the go and then add measurement details to it. This is really helpful if you want to share a picture of a table you found in a mall and record the dimension or if you are an engineer, carpenter, architect etc who want to take note of stuff around you, to refer later.
How to use it ?
Once you have taken an image using camera or from your picture hub, you can use the inbuilt measurement tools like line arrows, angles, polygon/areas to set up a region. Next, you can add details of the dimension in a format which any engineer can understand. So for a line it will be length, but for an angled walls you get an angle. It is also possible to add captions if you want to convey anything more than the measurements.
For having better precision, as you select a point on the image, you get a zoom lens which helps you understand the position of your finger. This is useful in cases where you want to add measurements to smaller object on a big picture e.g. window of a building.
Another interesting feature is measuring area on Bing maps, which can help you, measure street lengths etc. You can make a search or use my location to find an area and use the measurement tools.
Apart from these features it supports :
- Imperial Unit System & International Metric System support
- Images can be exported to Picture Hub.
- All images can be Organized into folders, and existing images can be edited.
- It comes with an Auto Length Helper. I guess it should tell me the length approximately, but it doesn’t seem to work. I will seek more info on this from the developer. Though I see it working on Bing Maps.
- Integration with Slydrive or Dropbox is required. This should include taking backup of all images and its measurement data.
