For informa- tion, visit LASER MEASURING DEVICE ikeGPS, Broomfield, Colorado, introduces Spike, a device with which sign and graphics profession- als can quickly measure locations for signage by capturing the width, height and area of a space – simply by taking a photo. The Spike device, Spike mobile app and your smartphone or tablet all work together. Spike is ideal during the initial site survey and estimation process. Once on location, capture photos of the available space or existing signage using your smartphone and Spike, and then take measurements from the photo. Measurements are recorded with the photo and can easily be shared with design- ers, fabricators or clients. The photo record can then be used to assess installation, create design mockups and address permit challenges. Also, photos can be accessed at any time for additional measurements via the Spike app or cloud-based tools, eliminating the need to return to the loca- tion for additional measurements.
