Metric & Standard Measurement Conversion Widget
length / distance measurements
Have you ever wanted to convert metric measurements to standard measurements (feet, miles, etc.) or the reverse? This web based tool will do just that. Simply select from one of the two switch tabs of the converter (default is metric to standard), enter your number, and select an option for each measurement unit. Presto, you have your metric and standard conversions done for you.

FYI: Metric and standard measurement systems are also known as Metric and English measurement systems. It's interesting to note that even though the standard system is associated with England (English), England now uses the metric system instead.

The metric measurement units are all based on the decimal system or Base 10 multiples. To convert the amount of units within the metric system, you only need to move the decimal point to the appropriate position. For example, since there are 10 decimeters in each meter, if someone tells you to convert 30 decimeters in the equivalent meter measurement, you'd simply move the decimal point 1 position to the left which would equal 3 meters (30.0 decimeters = 3.0 meters).
