 Tape Length Units
 Units of length are used to measure shot distance and passage dimensions.   1. Decimal Feet. This is a common surveying measure in the United States and some English speaking countries. Inches are not used in this system. On the tape, each foot is divided into 10 subdivisions and the values entered into the book are normal decimal fractions.   2. Feet and Inches. This is a common surveying measure in the United States and some English speaking countries. Each foot is divided into 12 sub-units called inches. When entering feet and inches, you simply enter two numbers separated by a space, comma or any non-numerical value. For example, if you enter “5,6” it will be interpreted as 5 feet and 6 inches. The feet part should be entered as a whole integer value with no fraction. Inches should be entered as whole integers and can include a decimal fraction.   3. Meters. Meters are the most widely used measure of distance in the world. It is also the standard unit of measure for scientific work. Meters can be entered as a whole integer with a decimal fraction.
