Description

Can you add the option of re-projecting coordinates to US Survey feet ?
I'm thinking you're using international feet in your units.
There's a difference of several feet when your coordinates are in the millions of feet (actual difference is about 2 feet for every million units)

*U.S. survey foot is exactly 1,200/3937 (10 decimal places)
*International foot is exactly 12x0.0254 (4 decimal places)

*National Institute of Standards & Technology

That would help us out considerably if you could address this issue.
Love QGIS ....!!

Is this just a matter of adding survey feet/miles as a unit choice to the measure tool? Or does it go deeper than that?
