The accuracy of measurement if the tape is laid directly on the ground is from 1:1,000 to 1:3,000; for other measuring methods the accuracy is 1:20,000 or higher.

(2) To record or capture. Although most TV stations have phased out videotape in favor of hard drives and solid state drives (SSDs), people still use the term "tape" to mean capture. The phrase "let's go to the tape" means "let's go to the recording." Although VCRs have long disappeared, consumers with DVRs may also "tape the show." See videotape.
