Construction plan with distance, circle area, and perimeter measurements

Measurement Tools Accelerate Takeoffs with PDF Measuring Tools

Enhance your app with powerful measurement tools: accurate distance, perimeter, and area calculations with scale calibration and a magnifying glass. Simplify content interpretation with callout annotations, fractional measurements, and dual metric and imperial units.

How It Works

Measure Technical Drawings

Integrate PDF measurement tools into your toolbar and give your users access to dimensional tools to measure distance, perimeter, and area. A magnifying glass and scale calibration ensure your measurements are precise.

Out-of-the-Box Measurement Tools

Deliver new features faster when you integrate a robust set of document measurement tools into your application. Measure distance, area, and perimeter directly in your app — no need to open third-party tools.

Streamline Review and Approval

Boost user productivity by syncing measurements across all connected devices. Add real-time collaboration to have live discussions directly on project plans and technical drawings.


Intuitive PDF Measuring Tools

Properly measure PDFs using accurate measuring tools that allow users to create, edit, calibrate, and share dimension measurements with ease.


Enable users to take length, width, and height measurements of an object on a page with the distance measurement tool, and display calculated values consistently, regardless of the measurement annotation size.


Perimeter Measure

Let users calculate the length of all sides of a measured object on a page with the perimeter measurement tool, and automatically close perimeters and polylines with the snap-to-close feature.


Area Measure

Allow users to calculate the area (polygon, circle, or rectangle) of a drawing on a page with the area measurement tool.



Let users set the scale for all future measurements by calibrating the length measurement using the built-in menu.


Set Scale and Value Precision

Individually adjust measurement precision and scale using the annotation inspector or via the API, while enhancing calibration with multiple scales, metric and imperial units, and fractional measurements.


Point Snapping

Apply snapping points for measurement annotations, with the option to toggle snapping on or off.

Use Cases

Facilitate PDF Measuring

Empower your users in their projects by giving them the tools they need to create, edit, and share measurements.

Quantity Takeoffs

Measurement Tools enables contractors to measure construction plans and technical drawings electronically — an important step for determining the precise amount of materials needed for a project.

Measurement Evaluations

Easily evaluate the work performed on a project by comparing real-life measurements against the measurements in a blueprint.

Planning, Reviewing, and Approvals

During the process of planning a project, there are many parties involved in reviewing plans and verifying measurements. Measurement Tools and our Instant engine make it easy to share measurements and add comments in real time.
