Measuring the height of the tower
Can this laser rangefinder be used to measure the height of the tower?
Yes, if your standing point is a horizontal position from the bottom of the tower, but some mathematical operations are required. Measure the straight-line distance from bottom to top. If you are not standing at the bottom level, it requires more calculations, but you can still do it. The accuracy will vary with the angle from the horizontal to the highest point and of course also with the reflectivity of the two points taken.
