The International Foot with SmarTarget

January 2, 2023

The National Institute of Standards and Technology and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration have officially retired the U.S. survey foot as a unit of measurement.  As of January 1st, 2023, The U.S. foot has been replaced by the international foot.  We planned ahead for this change when we developed our SmarTarget software.  You can easily switch units in the InTerra SmarTarget Locator project settings, as shown in the image below, to ensure that all of your projects are now up-to-date.

You can read more about this change on the NOAA and NIST websites.
