What about using as distance between points?
- @Avatar6: Good question, see for instance its usage on marathon (Q40244). 42.195 km is not the dimension of the object “marathon”. It is the distance between the start and finish line of a marathon. And while the English alias “distance” might perhaps allow such a statement, this is not the case for the German aliases which only cover physical dimensions of an object. What to do? —MisterSynergy (talk) 08:04, 5 August 2016 (UTC)
- Indeed, I can see a case for splitting length and distance. We have many specialised properties, e.g. distance from Earth (P2583), located on linear feature (P795), vehicle range (P2073), angular distance (P2212), apoapsis (P2243), wheelbase (P3039), clearance (P2793), stroke (P2557), takeoff roll (P2430) for distance or length, but only the one generic. The English description, "measured dimension of an object" also strongly implies it should not be used for distance. Thryduulf (talk) 00:36, 9 August 2016 (UTC)
