The indispensable estimation solution

Spike is a smart laser measurement solution for all types of industries and professional use, and brings new functionality to your smartphone or tablet by turning it into a powerful measurement solution. With Spike, professionals can save valuable time and money, measure from a safe distance, and access hard to reach areas all by taking a photo.

Spike allows you to measure and locate an object simply by taking a photo with your smartphone or tablet. From that photo, you can capture real-time measurements including areas, elevations, distances between two points, and GPS location.

The Spike laser device works with both Apple iOS and Google Android smartphones and tablets, and is available with three different mounting options. The Spike laser device pairs with your smartphone or tablet via Bluetooth. Spike’s laser rangefinder works together with your smartphone or tablet’s camera, GPS, compass, and Internet connection.

Spike gives you the flexibility to measure from the Spike mobile app or Spike Cloud. The Spike Cloud allows you to view, measure, export, and share your Spike photos and measurements from your desktop. The Spike Cloud offers premium features, such as export options for compatibility with third-party design and CAD packages, adding notes to images, and advanced folder organization.

Spike also supports design, architecture, engineering, construction, and GIS software, including Collector for ArcGIS, Survey123 for ArcGIS, AutoCAD, Revit, ARCHICAD, Adobe Illustrator, CorelDraw, and Flexi.

“Since using Spike, we’ve increased our speed in the field and can turn over surveys much faster. We don’t have to wait for a boom truck or take our guys off profitable jobs to conduct a site survey. I would say in the past six months that Spike has saved us hundreds of hours and paid for itself many times over.”

-Ryan, YESCO branch manager for St. George, Utah

Photo Measure: real-time measurements from a photo

With Spike, your time to measure an object is reduced to minutes. Simply take a photo of the object you want to measure, such as a building or wall, using the Spike app and your smartphone or tablet. From that photo, capture measurements instantly including areas, heights, widths, and lengths. Photos can be measured using the Spike mobile app or Cloud. You can access your photos at any time to remeasure, eliminating the need to return to the location for additional measurements.
Spike’s photo measurement capability allows you to measure hard-to-reach objects that would have otherwise required additional equipment, labor or tools. All it takes is one person to capture all the measurements you need, and while at a safe location and distance.

Point-to-Point: measure the distance between two objects

Measure the distance between two objects in seconds by capturing two photos. For example, to measure the distance between the side of a house and a nearby tree, a store front and a sign in the parking lot, the side of a highway and a light pole, a utility line and a tree or the ground up to the roof line of a house.
Simply aim Spike at the first object, such as the side of a house, and take a photo. Then, aim at your second object, such as a tree, and take a photo. Spike then calculates the distance between those two objects. In addition to the distance measurement, Spike also calculates the linear distance for vertical and horizontal measurements.

Measure Remote Objects and Collect GPS/GNSS Location From A Distance

Replace expensive and complicated GPS handheld devices with Spike, and reduce field collection times. Quickly and safely capture a target’s location, your location, and a georeferenced image of the target, simply by taking a photo from a safe distance. Location data includes latitude, longitude, and altitude.
Data collected with Spike can be exported as a KMZ file or imported into GIS software, including Collector for ArcGIS and Survey123 for ArcGIS.

Measure and Share Using the Spike Cloud

Spike gives you the flexibility to measure and share from the Spike mobile app or Spike Cloud. The Spike Cloud allows you to view, measure, export, and share your Spike photos and measurements from your desktop. While in the field, take a photo using the Spike app and your mobile device, then upload your photos to the Cloud to measure and report back at the office.
The Spike Cloud offers premium features, such as export options for compatibility with third-party design and CAD packages, adding notes to images, and advanced folder organization.

“We collected data on 322 signs in Nine Mile Canyon without any service. Once we were back in-range, all the data was there. What used to take us six months to collect, now only takes us weeks.”
