The iPhotoMeasure software enables any digital camera to function as an electronic measuring tape. You only have to put a small DigiTarget and take a picture of the room whose dimensions you wish to estimate, download the photo into your PC, and the software measures everything in the photo â€“ doors, windows, walls, built-ins â€“ with 99.5% accuracy. This will be useful for contractors who can now make estimates based on photos emailed to them.
The software is currently marketed not only to contractors but also to remodelers, designers, real estate agents, insurance professionals and event planners.
DigiContractor, Inc., maker of the iPhotoMeasure, has signed up Builders Book, a book store and publisher that caters exclusively to the building trades, to beef up the distribution channel for the software.
