How accurate are Moasure measurements?

Single-dimension measurements taken with Moasure – for example a 12ft length or height - are accurate to within 0.5% (plus or minus ¾ inch).

Area calculations made with Moasure ONE – for example a 150 sq. ft. area, are accurate to within 2.0% (plus or minus 3 to 4.5 sq. ft.).

How Moasure works

Moasure uses high-performance inertial sensors to record changes in its own position as it moves from one point to another.

When you place your Moasure device down and keep the device still, Moasure's algorithms calculate the data and the Moasure app records a point – a data coordinate with X, Y and Z values.

This means that when you measure the complete perimeter of a yard, for example, the linear distance between each point is calculated, as well as the height or elevation of the point itself.

The first point recorded in a measurement is always the 0 point (x:0, y:0, z:0). Subsequent X, Y and Z coordinates are calculated and displayed relative to this origin.

Using advanced algorithms, the Moasure app then calculates the overall linear distance, giving you the perimeter measurement – and calculates the total square footage giving you the area of the space.

Maximising measurement accuracy

There are three ways to maximise your Moasure measurement accuracy: by mastering your measuring technique through pace, placement and rotation.
