Simplify Surveys & Data Collection
The Spike device, Spike mobile app, Spike Cloud and your smartphone or tablet work together. All your measurements are saved with the photo and can be exported and shared as a PDF, Spike file (XML), KMZ, or uploaded to the cloud where you can export scaled images directly into AutoCAD for design processes. This completely removes any requirement to use interim steps such as scaling photo’s in Photoshop.
One of the key benefits is that you can access your photos at any time to remeasure, eliminating the need to return to the site for additional measurements. Additionally, photos and measurements can also be shared with your team or subcontractors, so everybody working on the project can prepare with the right tools and materials for their jobs. Trust in our photo measurement solution built from the feedback of tens of thousands of industry professionals all over the world to help improve how you are taking and working with measurements.
What Our Customers Say About Spike
“Spike was not only cost effective but very efficient in supporting our study of local government buildings. It allowed me to create a new level of detail for the project with a bunch of simple photos (100-plus) taken from my trusty smartphone and Spike. Classic measure of all those little details would have taken ages and would have required us to return on-site to capture missing measurements. Spike proved accurate for smaller details as well as overall building measurements. I can’t say enough about how valuable Spike is to architects like me.”

What Our Customers Say About Spike
“Having Spike on-site is invaluable to collecting planning and design information more accurately and efficiently. I’ve used Spike to quickly survey an area in order to produce a master plan for the renovation of an area of Liverpool City Centre. With Spike, I was able to capture the heights and facades of both the existing buildings we were working on and the adjacent buildings. The collected data was used on the planning application drawings to illustrate the heights of existing buildings and to support the design proposals.”
