How did the metric system begin?

The metric system has a long history. The "treaty of the meter" was signed in Paris in 1875 and perhaps might be thought of as the start of the metric system. However, the meter was put forward as a standard measure back in the 1700s. It was at that time that some bright scientist in France decided that a meter was one ten millionth of the distance from the equator to the pole of the earth (measured through Paris, of course). From 1875 to the 1970s, the metric system was refined. We now have a metric system that covers physical properties, time, electrical units and chemical units. What remains a bit of a mystery is how someone got a tape measure long enough to measure the distance from the equator to the pole! Follow the link below for more interesting information.
