Do this simple measurement  Use 1 of these 2 illustration below

A  Place a straight line or a level, place one end on the ground bring the line or level horizontal mark the post with a pencil.

(The length from touching the ground and the post
green line will be one your gate in an open position.)

B Measure down to the bottom of the post  and that's it

With this measurement
B and the width of your gate A I am able to work out the angle for your new rising hinges. Do this to both sides just incase they are different.  (By the way I also need the height of your Gate too)

Use a level or laser to get a level line
Any where up the post will do
Measure the distance down closes to the post first
For a Double set of gates measure 1 leaf width  and do the same.
A double gate has 2 gates called leafs

So what we need is
1. Your measurement
A to the ground 
2. Your measurement
B to the ground (this point is the very end of your gate in an open position)

So I need 3 Measurments
A and B and the height of your Gate
Total Width of one of your Gates in an open position
