# How many yards are there in a meter?

A measurement of 1 meter is equal to 1.09 yards. Both are very similar units of measure which are used for medium lengths and distances. Some things commonly measured in these lengths include sporting fields, sections of a roadway, or fabric. Both have been standardized as part of either the imperial system, in the case of yards, or the metric system, in the case of meters. When longer distances need to be measured, miles or kilometers can be used to simplify the process.
