electronic level
An electronic level is a type of level, also called a digital level, that features a simulated bubble display plus a digital readout of degrees of slope, inches per foot (or centimeters per meter) for rise and run of stairs and roofs, and percentage of slope for drainage problems on decks and masonry. Digital levels are becoming increasingly common on construction sites.
