(1) A survey line used in the government survey to establish township lines. The base line runs east and west through a principal meridian (line running north and south). (2) A horizontal elevation line used as the centerline in a survey for a highway route.
(1) A surveyed line of great accuracy which serves as the basis for measurement of other lines or of the angles between them. (2) In a land survey system an East-West line passing through the origin from which township, section, and quarter-section corners are established.
The base line of a projection refers to the period of population change that is being extrapolated.
A Line which is used as a base for further work, particularly in surveying. ( BCFT modif.)
An imaginary line extended east and west on a parallel of latitude and crossing a Principal Meridian at an Initial Point, used for surveyors in locating and describing land under the Public Land Survey System
A survey line used to establish township lines for government surveys.
The imaginary line supporting the bottom serifs of capitals and lowercase.
The direct line between each base, along which the base runner must generally run.
The imaginary horizontal line upon which capitals, lower case letters, and punctuation points stand.
A located line for reference control purposes.
The line on which both capital and lowercase letters stand.
a line that connects the four bases of a baseball diamond, marked with chalk between home plate and first base and between home plate and third base. Click here for more detail
1. The reference line in a measurement by triangulation. In meteorological observations it has several applications, for example, 1) the horizontal distance from the observation point to the location of a ceiling-light projector; 2) the horizontal distance between a ceilometer projector and detector; and 3) the bearing, distance, and slope of the line between the observational points in a double-theodolite observation. 2. In dual-Doppler analysis, the length and bearing of the line separating the radars.
The imaginary line that denotes where the bottom of non-descending letters lie.
a line approximating a latitude circle from which townships are projected north and south to the correction lines (to be defined later)
a line specified in command "line", to cg serve as the initial line for creating a family of cg lines with vertex point names incremented by a cg specified numbers of characters from those of the cg preceding line
a surveyors term describing a line extending east and west from a chosen point on a principal meridian and forming with the meridian a pair of coordinate axes for locating township and section corners
A line behind the vent, distinguishing the cascabel, to its rear, from the remainder of the breech. Traditionally marked by a base ring, as on the six-pounder gun or 12-pounder field howitzer, the base line is for later models an imaginary line at about the point of sharpest curvature.
The imaginary line on which the majority of letters sit. ( See X-HEIGHT, MEANLINE.)
Imaginary line on which an object lies
The main, imaginary east-west line used by surveyors as a reference to locate and describe land under the U.S. Government Survey System to determine the legal description of a property.
The white chalk lines that extend from home plate through first and third base to the outfield and up the foul poles, inside which a batted ball is in fair territory and outside of which it is in foul territory.
Starting point. Information gathered at the beginning of observation or trial.
The writing line that the body of a letter sits upon.
The line (often imagenary) that the base portion of a letter (font) rests, excluding the ascender or descender.
An imaginary line on which the bottoms of capital letters rest.
A parallel of latitude, or approximately a parallel of latitude, running through an arbitrary point chosen as the starting point for all sectionalized land within a given area.
a line used as a base for measurement. In HIV Disease, a base line is the results of several lab tests used to monitor the effectiveness of drugs. (Commonly -- but incorrectly -- spelled as a single word: baseline)
is the (orthogonal) projection line of the area of contact between the sessile drop and the solid
The imaginary line on which characters appear to rest in a line of type. Some characters drop somewhat below it for better visual base alignment.
One of a set of imaginary lines running east and west used by surveyors for reference in locating and describing land under the government survey method of property description.
A reference survey line of the government or rectangular survey, being an imaginary line extending east and west and crossing a principal meridian at a definite point.
A snapshot of the state of a CI and any component CIs frozen at a point in time, for a particular purpose
Describes the imaginary horizontal line upon which stand capitals, lower case letters, punctuation points etc.
An imaginary horizontal line that coincides with the bottom of each character in a font, excluding descenders (tails on letters such as p).
A set of artifacts that have been agreed upon by the appropriate people. A base line can only be changed with approval. A base line serves as the basis for continuing work. Base lines are typically created at major project milestones.
A vibration reading of a piece of equipment in good operating condition. The baseline becomes a reference point for testing and monitoring.
A surveyed line established with more than usual care, to which surveys are referred for coordination and correlation.
The imaginary line that characters rest on in a line of text (see also line spacing).
a starting point from which future improvements will be compared.
The main imaginary line running east and west and crossing a principal meridian at a definite point, used by surveyors for reference in locating and describing land under the rectangular (government) survey system of legal description.
