grid and measurments

does anybody know if Blender will make measurements easier to use in the future? I use imperial units and I don’t know how to size up a grid to say 1 mile and I think in imperial units feet is .305? does this effect the camera settings? i would think so.

Have a look at these few videos on Units and Scale:

Also here:

.9144 for yards will get you closer.

It is all relative in Blender. You can just set it to English, Feet or Inches. Make sure, though, and adjust the Unit Scale back to 1. Then all of the other values will display correctly. Camera lens sizes (Focal Length) and sensor sizes will all remain mm. All other values such as DOF distance will be converted to Imperial - which of course makes perfect sense.
