The current definition of the meter is effectively the same as the definition that was adopted in 1983, with slight modifications due to the change in definition of the second.
While the United States is one of the few, if not only, countries in which the foot is still widely used, many countries used their own version of the foot prior to metrication, as evidenced by a fairly large list of obsolete feet measurements.
To calculate a foot value to the corresponding value in meters, just multiply the quantity in feet by 0.
This resulted in the measurement of a foot varying between 250 mm and 335 mm in the past compared to the current definition of 304.
This definition was slightly modified in 2019 to reflect changes in the definition of the second.
