Definitions for "baseline"
an imaginary line or standard by which things are measured or compared; as, they established a baseline for the budget.
the back line at each end of a tennis court.
the lines between bases on a baseball field along which a baseball player must run while running the bases.
a measurement that represents the value of a physical quantity (such as a voltage, or a level of radioactivity) in the absence of effects from other variables in a measurement, test or experiment; a control value.
The baseline for a project is the scenario that reasonably represents the anthropogenic emissions by sources of greenhouse gases or removals by sinks that would occur in the absence of the proposed project. A baseline shall cover emissions from all gases, sectors and source categories listed in Annex A of the Kyoto Protocol and removals by all ecosystem carbon pools within the project boundary. Project-Specific Baseline: Developed for a new project/project type. Standard Baseline: The baseline for a registered project will be used as a precedent for other projects of the same type. If adjustments are required to the standard baseline to meet the circumstances of the project, these adjustments must be justified.
measures see benchmark.
A baseline is a complete description of the configuration of a system at a particular point in its development.
A documented version of a hardware component, software program, configuration, standard, procedure, or project management plan. Baseline versions are placed under formal change controls and should not be modified unless the changes are approved and documented.
a formally identified cohesive set of one or more configuration items that is to be established by a certain milestone. Note that a baseline can only be changed by means of the formal configuration control task. vb. to place a work product under configuration control and identify it as part of a baseline.
a pair of radio dish antennae seperated by some distance but connected together as part of a radio interferometer telescope. (See also text in baselines.)
1. In radio interferometry, the separation between the electrical, or phase centers of two interferometer elements. See also baseline co-ordinates, u-v-w co-ordinates. 2. In spectroscopy, the contribution to a spectrum from phenomena that are not of astronomical interest, such as frequency dependent properties of the receivers, unwanted multi-path propagation in an antenna structure, or spectral lines emitted by the Earth's atmosphere, or by astronomical sources other than those under study.
The vector joining receiving elements of an interferometer; usually the projection as seen from the source.
The common set of package and class editions upon which a development team builds an application. Package and class owners release their editions to update the team baseline; developers replace the editions in their workspaces to synchronize with the team baseline. Baselines typically signify a point of progress.
A starting point. A baseline for a regeneration scheme might be 20% of housing stock in the area needing urgent repairs. Funding might then be allocated to reduce this to 10% over a period of time, creating an outcome for the scheme. Regeneration schemes may have large amounts of baseline data which reflect their priorities for action. These baselines may be identified in consultation with the local community.
The numeric level of nutrient load at a particular point in time that serves to establish nurtient reduction goals and allowances.
a pair of stations for which simultaneous GPS data has been collected
A baseline consists of the resultant three dimensional vector between a pair of stations for which simultaneous GPS data is collected.
Vector The difference in three-dimensional coordinates (X, Y, Z) computed from the difference in simultaneous carrier phase observations at two or more receivers.
The initial data score of a subject before an experiment, used as a benchmark (or reference value) against which the experimental data is compared.
a history of performance over time and is used to compare against current activity
A reference set of data against which operating data is compared

Baseline (in WCAG 2.0) is a set of technologies that a user agent (browser, media player, screen reader etc.) is assumed to support and have enabled. It may be set by the author or higher authority. When an author makes a WCAG 2.0 conformance claim, they must specify the baseline that they are using to make that claim. The author is claiming that their content will meet WCAG 2.0 at the stated level of conformance if a user’s agent can support those (the baseline) technologies.. It's important to note that the baseline consists of technologies that are assumed to be supported by user-agents, and not specific user agents. The concept of baseline is based around trust. It is very possible to abuse baselines by declaring technologies that are not widely supported and not widely supported by assistive technology. For more information visit About Baselines and WCAG 2.0.
a set of technologies set by the author (or more likely their company, or maybe a higher level like a government) that are assumed to be available in the client, such as HTML , CSS , scripting, GIF , jpg, MPEG , etc
Set of technologies assumed to be supported by, and enabled in, user agents in order for Web content to conform to these guidelines. Note: Some examples of entities that may set baselines that an author may have to follow include the author, a company, a customer and government entities.
a good idea, I do that from time to time using my phoropter to make sure it agrees with my trial set
a release of artifact s, which have been reviewed and approved by the appropriate stakeholders, that together form an agreed-on basis for further evolution or development of the system

Detector signal for zero concentration for HPLC, GC, IC, and other analytical instruments.
A student's present level of performance on a particular skill, established using a student's median (middle) score across three probes on instructional level material.
Pre-campaign exposure awareness, favourability and intent levels
The normal level of a pulse waveform. The voltage level in the absence of a pulse.
The maximum usage that can be billed at the lowest price for a particular rate schedule. Baseline Quantity varies by season, climate zone and heat source.
A rate structure mandated by the California Legislature and implemented at Pacific Gas and Electric Company in 1984 that ensures all residential customers are provided a minimum necessary quantity of gas at the lowest possible cost.
a distance between two satellites that can be represented by its length and orientation or separated into two cartesian components or expressed in polar form
The distance you move between the left and right pictures when taking them.
The distance between two (or more) places from which observations are made.
Keywords:  tantrums, stays, child, task, sample
a representative sample of the behavioral problem over a short period of time-for example, the number of tantrums the child has each day or how long the child stays on task
Condition of the resource and services that would have existed had a spill or release not occurred.
The conditions existing before the commencement of mineral operations. This may not be the ?natural? state, as there may be other impacts already operating.
The baseline is the location where Z=0 in the coordinate system. Normally, this is where the bottom of the boat or the keel is located. During the design process, however, the position of the keel may change, but the baseline is always at the Z=0 position.
The typical or normal state of an individual or of a parameter before change
The portion of the forecast derived from historical information and trends after adjusting for promotions and other unusual events.
a process for studying the network at regular intervals to ensure that the network is working as designed
Scientists study nature and try to determine the way an ecosystem or a species functions in its natural state. The baseline heart rate of a human is approximately 72 beats per minute.
Baseline is a confusing term because it appears to have many meanings in the energy industry. For this discussion, "Baseline" represents "how much energy would have been used during the Base Year period, given today's conditions", where "today's conditions", for the most part, means weather and number of billing days. Different utility accounting systems have different meanings for Baseline, unfortunately.
a complete backup of all data on the storage device
a sequence of data arranged in chronological order
a standard or protocol which is in place for the sake of governing events
A policy neutral set of estimates designed to show the effect on continuing current law through the period covered by the budget.
A collection of data setting out a statistical summary of current conditions that can be used to inform predictions or targets for the future.
The typical or normal state of an individual or of an investigative variable prior to an experimental manipulation.
a system or module that has been designed, developed, and initially tested to meet a particular need, either internal to Laboratory or for a client.
