Since 1959, the U.S. has used two types of feet, the “international foot” and the “U.S. survey foot.” They differ by only 0.01 foot per mile, but having both in use creates problems with real costs.This webinar discusses the history of the foot, the importance of standards, and shows how NGS can help move the U.S. to a single foot definition in 2022.

I highly recommend every surveyor in Oklahoma watch this video. I have always been a proponet of the US Survey foot. But I have to say, this webinar is very thought provoking.
