Electromagnetic Distance Measurement device, the instrument used by modern surveyors that replaces the use of measurement chains. It determines distance by measuring the time it takes for laser light to reflect off a prism on top of a rod at the target location.
Electronic distance measurer-. a gadget which sends out an infra red beam to a reflector which returns it to a receiver. It measures distance very accurately. Reflectorless EDM's are now available. These reflect from any surface, but have less range, and, are slightly less accurate.
EDM (Electronic Document Management) is the management of different kinds of document in an enterprise using computer programs and storage. An EDM system allows an enterprise and its users to create a document or capture a hard copy in electronic form, store, edit, print, process, and otherwise manage documents in image, video, and audio, as well as in text form.
Abbreviation for an electronic diesel consumption measurement system that provides the driver with a continuous readout of fuel consumption. On vehicles fitted with EDM the tachograph can be linked up to an additional sensor so fuel consumption can be recorded.
electronic Direct Mail also know or referred to as e-mail Direct Mail or e-mail Direct Marketing.
Electronic Document Management. A system that manages different kinds of documents, using computers. An EDM system allows a company and its users to create a document or capture the hard copy of a file in electronic form. It can then store, edit, print, and process documents in audio, video, or text form.

Electronic Document Management. An EDM system allows an enterprise and its users to create a document or capture a hard copy in electronic form, store, edit, print, process, and otherwise manage documents in image, video, and audio, as well as in text form. An EDM system may include scanners for document capture, printers for creating hard copy, storage devices and computer server and server programs for managing the databases that contains the documents.

Electronic document management includes document imaging technologies (including EDC, film-based imaging, desktop imaging, optical storage, output options and archiving), workflow, information retrieval and integrated document management software, publishing and viewing technologies, hardcopy output production, electronic forms, database publishing, integrated document archival and retrieval strategies, automated document factories, paper reduction strategies and applications development tools for production output.
electronic distance meter. a device that emits ultrasonic waves that bounce off solid objects and return to the meter. The meter's microprocessor then converts the elapsed time into a distance measurement. Sound waves spread 1 foot wide for every 10 feet measured. There are various types available.
