Handy Online Ruler

This is an online virtual ruler that can be adjusted to actual size, before you use it, please set the pixels per inch to your own device. This is useful to me and welcome to share it or use it.

Adjusting this virtual ruler to actual size

There are some ways to know the pixels per inch(PPI) to your devie.
  1. My laptop has a wide screen (13.6"x7.6"), and resolution is 1366x768 pixels, 1366 / 13.6 = 100.44 PPI. Screen resolution of current device is pixels.
  2. Search "display by pixel density" online, check if there has your device's brand and model, i am lucky and found my screen has 100 PPI.
  3. Use standard objects to compare lengths, check your wallet, use any paper money to be our compare object, then search "the width of your paper money" online, when you know the width, you can adjust the ruler's PPI setting by it, your moblie phone is a standard object could be use.
  4. The most accurate way, after i measure the size of virtual ruler by an actual ruler, i found the markings are not very accurate at 30cm, so i adjust the default pixels per inch(PPI) to 100.7, now i get an online actual size ruler.
  5. Mobile Sony Xperia C5 is 122.6 PPI

Save the pixels per inch (PPI) according your own device, then you can use this ruler next time.
