1799 Jun 22, In France a scientific congress adopted the length of the meter as one ten-millionth of the distance along the surface of the Earth from its equator to its pole, in a curved line of latitude passing through the center of Paris. The congress used data gathered by astronomers, Jean-Baptiste-Joseph Delambre and Pierre-FranпїЅois-AndrпїЅ Mechain. The established meter proved to be .2 millimeters too short, due to incorrect latitude data gathered by Mechain.
