Unit Definition (alen [Scandinavia])
The Alen is a traditional Scandinavian unit of distance, which is very similar to the North German Elle: which is roughly equal to 2 feet or 60 centimeters.

Unit Definition (cuerda)
The Cuerda is a traditional unit of distance in Guatemala, equal to 25 varas or about 21 meters (roughly 69 feet). Since cuerda means a cord or rope in Spanish, this unit probably arose as the length of a measuring rope. The cuerda is also used as an area measure equal to 1 square cuerda or 625 square varas; this is about 440 square meters or 527 square yards. Note that the cuerda is also a traditional unit of land area in Puerto Rico, as well as a volume measurement for firewood in Cuba.
