1. A linear measuring system for the recording of angular and position absolute values, where the scale includes a measurement track for generating absolute values which is recorded by an appropriate scanning head, wherein the scale is composed of at least two segments which are identical created for the generation of absolute values and wherein at least one suitable track is provided on the scale for determining the absolute value of the particular segment reached by means of a further sensor arrangement and wherein means of switching are provided which use the absolute value of the segments and the calculated absolute value within the segment to provide the total absolute value for further processing.
