This LENGTH and distance measurement metric system conversion table converts inches to centimeters, feet to meters, and miles to kilometers.

It also converts centimeters to inches, meters to feet, and kilometers to miles.
Small, medium, and large scale linear conversions can be easily done, by simply reading down the appropriate column. Both Metric-to-English, and English-to-Metric conversions are given. The chart below is a .jpeg, and may be saved with your mouse button, and printed out for reference, if desired.
