"A datum is a theoretically exact plane, axis, line, or point. A datum does not actually exist on a workpiece or tool since these items have imperfections. Datums are located from the inexact features on a part. The imperfect features on a workpiece that are used to establish a datum location or orientation are known as datum features. Datum features are physical entities."
