Text | 1 | The text Each logical unit is mapped to one device pixel. Positive x is to the right; positive y is down | |

Lometric | 2 | The lometric Each logical unit is mapped to 0.1 millimeter. Positive x is to the right; positive y is up. | |

Himetric | 3 | The himetric Each logical unit is mapped to 0.01 millimeter. Positive x is to the right; positive y is up. | |

Loenglish | 4 | The loenglish Each logical unit is mapped to 0.01 inch. Positive x is to the right; positive y is up. | |

Hienglish | 5 | The hienglish Each logical unit is mapped to 0.001 inch. Positive x is to the right; positive y is up. | |

Twips | 6 | The twips Each logical unit is mapped to one twentieth (1/20) of a point. In printing, a point is 1/72 of an inch; therefore, 1/20 of a point is 1/1440 of an inch. This unit is also known as a "twip". | |

Isotropic | 7 | The isotropic Logical units are mapped to arbitrary device units with equally scaled axes; that is, one unit along the x-axis is equal to one unit along the y-axis. The META_SETWINDOWEXT and META_SETVIEWPORTEXT records specify the units and the orientation of the axes. | |

Anisotropic | 8 | The anisotropic Logical units are mapped to arbitrary units with arbitrarily scaled axes. |
