Applies to:

Oracle Spatial - Version: 10.2.0.5 to 11.2.0.2 - Release: 10.2 to 11.2
Information in this document applies to any platform.

The NAD83 Coordinate Reference System (CRS) supplied with the Oracle database is in meters. 

There may be a requirement to have the NAD83 CRS available in U.S. feet,
if so, a custom SRID will need to be created.
