USA dimension style

Landscape drawings are constructed full size in model space. This means that any enquiry of a design (in model space) will give values that are meaningful in the units used to construct the design. Construction teams need properly dimensioned drawings to implement the work. In the USA, while a design will be drawn with the base unit set to decimal feet, dimensions are displayed in feet and inches.
