Customary/Imperial Unit

The mile is a measure of distance between two points used within the US Customary and British Imperial units of measure. It is customarily used to measure large geographical distances. The mile is officially defined as 5,280 feet, 1,760 yards or 1,609.344 meters. The abbreviation or for miles is 'mi' or sometimes 'm' as in miles per hour. The mile's origin stems from the Roman mile, which marked the distance the Roman army could march over 1,000 (mille) paces.

SI Unit

The meter is the primary unit for measurement of length within the metric (SI) system of measure. It is officially defined as the distance which light travels in 1/299,792,458th of a second in a vacuum. Internationally the meter is usually spelled 'metre', however the prevalent spelling in the United States is 'meter'. Its symbol is the lower case letter m. The meter is the base unit for deriving all other SI units of length eg. kilometer (1,000 meters).
