We present a strategy for estimation of d-level quantum states and for the simple adaption of corresponding measurements. The adaption method is inspired by mutually unbiased measurements, but it is also applicable in cases for which no complete set of mutually unbiased bases is known. We present results of Monte Carlo simulations, that demonstrate the fidelity gain of the adaptive strategy compared to a non-adaptive estimation.
