  1. Rangefinder

    A rangefinder is a device that measures distance from the observer to a target, for the purposes of surveying, navigation, determining focus in photography, choosing a golf club, or accurately aiming a weapon. Some devices use active methods to measure; others measure distance using trigonometry. Older methodologies that use a set of known information, usually distances or target sizes, to make the measurement, have been in regular use since the 18th century.
