General discussions of measurement techniques and the results of testing of techniques and equipment.

If I move to a new vantage point I still get distance and angle to both the top and the tape from the new vantage point. I like using the tape because it's easier to see compared to the base when clutter is present and more accurate than trying to eyeball where the mid-slope is from a distance.
Thanks again for posting these results, great discussion!
