Distance measuring wheels by Rolatape and Calculated Industries. The measuring wheel, also called a surveyor's wheel, is a single (or double) wheel attached to a long handle. The measuring wheel acts similar to a car's odometer; as a surveyor pushes the wheel across a surface, a counter attached to the wheel measures distance traveled by keeping track of each revolution of the wheel. Wheels measure the distance along a surface, not between two points. This distance measuring tool is generally used to take quick, rough measurements of large areas. Rolatape specializes in the manufacturing of quality distance measuring wheels.
Founded in 1950 by Donald Woolard, Rolatape introduced to the world the first modern measuring wheels.
