Miles : A mile is a most popular measurement unit of length, equal to most commonly 5,280 feet (1,760 yards, or about 1,609 meters). The mile of 5,280 feet is called land mile or the statute mile to distinguish it from the nautical mile (1,852 meters, about 6,076.1 feet). Use of the mile as a unit of measurement is now largely confined to the United Kingdom, the United States, and Canada.

Nautical Miles : The nautical mile (symbol M, NM or nmi) is a unit of length, defined as 1,852 meters (approximately 6,076 feet). It is a non-SI unit used especially by navigators in the shipping and aviation industries, and also in polar exploration.
