Units of Measure

Customization ››

You can change measurement units for both input and on‑screen output. It is suggested that you specify units of measure being used for linear and angular measurements in projects you're working on.

Units of Measure settings in Options dialog

GeoView supports customizing following units of measure:

Please keep in mind that you can change measurements settings any time you want, even when working on the same document, since GeoView internally keeps measurement data as SI base units. It is also important to remember that GeoView keeps measurement data using IEEE floating point precision (approximately 16 decimal digits), while numeric format settings may constraint or round the values as they're displayed on the screen. Be aware that GeoView measurement settings have no correlation with AutoCAD's own units setting like UNITS, or INSUNITS, or any other system variable.
