The international inch is defined in terms of the metric (!) system of units to be
exactly (!) 25.4 mm. This definition was agreed upon by the U.S. and the British
Commonwealth in 1958. Prior to that, the U.S. and Canada each had their own,
slightly different definition of the inch in terms of metric units, while the U.K. and
other Commonwealth countries defined the inch in terms of the Imperial Standard
Yard. The U.S. continued to use its previous national definition of the inch for
surveying purposes. This inch, known as the U.S. survey inch is defined so that
1 metre is exactly 39.37 survey inches. 1 survey inch equals approximately
25.40000508 mm, or 1.000002 international inches.
