Abstract (en)

[origin: WO0133988A1] An on-line method for measuring dimensions including using a computer screen (252). The measurement method features a calibration technique which provides for the display of an indicator (254) on the computer screen which is compared to an object (250), preferably a coin, which has known dimensions. By moving portions of an indicator to correspond to at least one known dimension of the object along at least one axis, the number of pixels between two portions of the indicator may be divided into the length of the known dimension to calculate a calibration rule. The calibration rule may be utilized to convert the number of pixels between two other locations on the screen into a length, such as may be utilized for the measuring of a human hand for fitting with a glove.
