      • Force measurement value for a known dimension with align

        I'm trying to get very accurate data. If I know that an element of the photo is a precise size (say 24"x24") I find it almost impossible to get the alignment rectangle to match those numbers. Either my thumbs are too big, the granularity of the zoom is not precise enough, or I can't control placement well enough to hit the number I know is correct. Alternatively, if I could see the value I was creating as I dragged a corner of the align box (H,W) maybe I could tune it in.

        • select and send multiple images on one email

          I often take a few photos at a site. I would like to be able to select multiple images for one email. Seems like the select tool in the image library only gives me the option to delete images. Do I have that right?

          • Angle measurements

            Angle measurements via the desktop/web app perhaps?

            • you could also draw circles instead of just lines and cut outs

              do a lot of graphics for car doors that are circular and would be a great enhancement

                • rename file / tagging

                  any plans to add tagging and/or file renaming when exporting?
                  recently did 15 different measurements in the same day. was pretty difficult to keep track of the standard 2015-05-14 17_31_58 GMT-4_spike_export.pdf file

                    • measure Curved surfaces like pool patios , surfaces etc.

                      I'd love to be able to walk over to a poolside deck , take a quick snapshot of the area and map out the square ft for the pool, the decking etc.

                        • volumetric measurement

                          would be great if the spike app could incorporate some features from the original ikegps (ge mapsight) for volumetric and utility measurement, for example, the 3-shot measurement feature

                          • Photos could be imported into illustrator already sized (or scaled appropriately to fit into Adobe Illustrator)

                            An option to import photos into desktop software like Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop already sized for design. Due to Illustrator's size limitations, it would probably have to scale the image appropriately most times, in which case it would need a scale indicator to say how much to scal to hit full size.

                              planned  ·  Richard Mander responded

                              We are looking to add this capability soon. It will most likely be an option from the Spike Cloud interface.

                            • Customize data collection form for Spike

                              Would be great if user can customize data collection form for Spike, such as customize form in Mapsight device.

                              • increased zoom screen with nudge facility

                                The popup screen with cross hairs is good, but on an iPad there is so much more room. It would be good if the screen could be increased with larger zoom factor (possibly option within settings). Also a nudge facility as opposed to the current snap could improve accuracy. I am finding half the time I want the cross hairs about halfway between the snap points

                                • Adjust exposure levels on photos

                                  No having the ability to select to area to focus on creates some photos come with dark areas. Having the ability to adjust the exposure/brightness/contrast would help make these more visible and usable

                                  • I could capture Spike images from an aerial device (mult-icopter for example).

                                    DJI just announced they're releasing an SDK for their multi-copters (MC). I think your technology would be a perfect match for aerial mapping. You're probably already working on something in this field, the benefit here is that DJI make several MCs that are affordable and easy enough to use for the general public. Many manufacturers are working on mapping solution for their devices, I expect aerial mapping will become one of the most common uses of these copters. Typically, the software offered for this job simply stitches together multiple images. Being able to accurately measure in scale from the images…

                                    • Ability to select millimetres

                                      The ability to select millimetres as the unit of measure will bring the unit into align with the building industry. May also improve accuracy of smaller measures.

                                          Would be great to display screen with Chromecast, this would improve user experience and make demo much more dynamic.
