MapSight Tools Software

MapSight Tools is a Windows Mobile software installed on the device for capturing specific data points you require. The following Tools represent core MapSight functionality.



Capture a calibrated (TrueSize) photo of a utility or telecommunications pole with one shot, then transfer to a PC application for measuring the heights of the pole and its attachments.


Target Position

Point MapSight at a remote object such as a tree, pole or building and capture its GPS location using the on-board GPS, laser range finder and compass. One shot and you’re on to the next object.

Missing Line

Calculate the horizontal distance between any two objects.


Span Height

Calculate the vertical height above ground of a point on a span, for example the mid-span height of a cable or wire.


Photo Only

Capture a high resolution photo of an object. Useful for documenting the conditions of located or measured objects, for identifying hazards for field crews and for including in assessments.


Local Point

Captures the GPS location of the device, not the remote object. It eliminates the error introduced from the laser and compass, therefore it is more accurate than Target position.
