We introduce the functor Meas in the category of complete ultra metric spaces and nonexpansive mapping. The main result of this paper is that Meas is a welldefined and locally nonexpansive endofunctor. Therefore the functor fits naturally in the metric approach to programming language semantics. The use of Meas in the construction of probabilistic powerdomains, either directly or through the use of domain equations, is illustrated with two examples.
