- Brief summaryInstead of taking manual measurements with the aid of the different measuring instruments one can also take a photograph of an individual and indicate on the picture the same measuring points as in the manual measuring method. In this way it is easy to take a number of measurements within a short time. The distances between the indicated measuring points are directly translated by means of a computer program in a measure as height, sitting height etc. and the relationship of the different distances expressed as a ratio like sitting height/height or a comparison of sitting height for height.
The advantage of photometry is that it is easier and time consuming while the accuracy of the method is comparable to the classic measuring methods.
