a geodetic instrument for measuring the length of lines on location. Made of steel or invar, it is 15 to 20 mm wide, 0.3 to 0.4 mm thick, and 20 to 50 m long (sometimes up to 100 m). 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.
