Explanation:
Was it not you who had a question with "dévéloppé" recently?

Whatever the length of a piece of knotted string, it's developed length is its length once all the knots have been taken out.

Similarly, the width of a spoon might be 4 cm, but it's developed width will be greater, having been measured along the "dip" in the spoon.

You might walk a certain distance across a mountain, from A to B as measured by satellite, but the developed distance will include the distance added by altitude and all the hairpins and deviations you have to do.
