    Metric survey is an integral part of the historic building conservation process. It allows us to gain an understanding of the structure and to document change to these important heritage assets. It is important that the surveyor of historic buildings has an intimate understanding of these unique structures and their significance. In order for conservation professionals and academics to create metric survey there is a need for tools which are accurate, simple to use and cost effective. This paper has assessed two software packages, PhoToPlan and TheoLt. By conducting a survey of an identical area using both systems conclusions have been made on their application for metric survey of the historic environment. Assessment has been made on the ease of use, accuracy and cost. By highlighting these tools it is hoped that awareness will be increased of simple, digital methods of metric survey, thereby reducing the reliance of expensive hightech solutions and providing conservation professionals the means to create their own metric survey.
