The meter was introduced in the 1790s by the French. It represented one ten millionth of the distance from the equator to the North Pole via a meridian that passed through Paris. The meter was redefined in 1984 as the distance that light travels in a vacuum in 1/299,792,458 seconds as measured by a cesium-133 atomic clock.

The foot has also been refined over time. The U.S. Survey's foot is 1.000002 International feet.
