English translation:planimeter survey with 300 mm tripod
Explanation:
Planimetry can mean measurement of area, but here I think it's more probably measuring the "flatness" of the glass, by placing on it at various points a small tripod with, perhaps, a bubble level on top?

Just about takes it - I like the word "survey", though "reading" is also pretty good.
