An altimeter actually measure brometric (atmospheric) pressure, which converts to height above sea level
Altitude is measured with an altimeter
Haga is the brand name. An altimeter is used to measure altitude, which is how high you are above sea level.
It helps to measure altitude, especially in an airplane
An altimeter is an instrument to measure the altitude.
It could be an altimeter or a GPS unit.
to measure their altitude
The main difference between altimeter and cabin altimeter is the place where they take their pressure: Altimeter takes the pressure from static ports, while cabin altimeter takes it's pressure from the cabin.
There are many, GPS, Altimeter, Theodolite etc.
An altimeter is a piece of apparatus which measures someone's altitude.
An altimeter is an instrument which measures altitude. The standard altimeter measures altitude above sea level. The radar altimeter, however, measures altitude above ground level.
There should be an altimeter in every plane. Or we can use sonar or some kind like that.
true altitude at field elevation.
My handheld GPS instrument has a barometric altimeter in it also.
My GPS instrument contains a barometric altimeter.
An altimeter does not actually measure altitude directly, but rather just atmospheric pressure. So an altimeter is actually a barometer created for a specific purpose. See related link The altimeter measures the height above the ground and has a pointer which is adjustable depending in which air field you are taking off on. it measures the pressure of the air as you get higher off the ground the pressure reduces therefore it is able to determine your height above ground.
My wristwatch has an altimeter, which as a backpacker, I find very useful.
An altimeter is an altitude measuring device (alti + meter).
I want to see your 4runner if it has an altimeter in it! If so, what is the max altitude you can fly to? Did they really put an altimeter in 4 runners??
my American friend Keith Giles has one which includes an altimeter
Altimeter 2992 means that the air pressure is 29.92 in. HG. 29.92 in. HG. With this information, you would calibrate your altimeter to 29.92.
notes about pulsed Doppler radar FM altimeter
Altimeter indicates altitude of air craft from ground. they are known as radio altimeters.
