Some units of measurement used in past and present surveys:

• 1 meter = 39.37 in = 3.2808 ft
• 1 rod = 1 pole = 1 perch = 16½ ft = 5.029 m
• 1 engineer’s chain = 100 ft = 100 links = 30.48 m
• 1 Gunter’s chain = 66 ft = 20.11 m = 100 Gunter’s links (lk) = 4 rods
• 1 acre = 100000 sq (Gunter’s) links = 43560 ft2 = 160 rods2 = 10 sq (Gunter’s) chains = 4046.87 m2 = 0.4047 ha
• 1 rood = 3/4 acre = 1011.5 m2 = 40 rods2
• 1 ha = 10000 m2 = 107639.10 ft2 = 2.471 acres
• 1 arpent = about 0.85 acre
• 1 square arpent about 3439.1 m2
