|Distance data type|
The data type Distance represents a distance measurement.
The TDE data types for quantifiable data (numeric values with units of measure) are all stored as double and are handled similarly for Template scripting.
Since every quantifiable data type is stored as double, be sure to account for that when you test equivalency (for example, 1 may actually be stored as 0.999999). Either round off the values being compared, or use ranges for the comparison.
Kilometer or km — default
Mile or mi
Meter or m
Feet or ft
Radian or rad (the distance at the equator in radians)
Hectometer or hm
Centimeter or cm
Data from TDE defaults to the first unit listed for each data type. In the [Output] section, you can convert these values to the units you need:
[Output] Mileage(mile) = Input.Distance # converts km to mi
The effective range of this data type is: 0 to 40,000,000,000 km
