I don't understand what is what on this picture. Can someone explain to me what is the meaning of different elements, especially ''casing on the pavement, casing edge on socket floors, outside edge of sockets and core-plane of the pavement".

Also, does anybody know where I can found today measurements of the sides of the base of the Great Pyramid, because all I can found is probable length of the base side with casing stones, but not without it as today.

Or to be more specific - What is the length of the pyramid base side without casing stones, or what is the size of the casing stones (so I can calculate today's base length)?

Casing stones - yellow.
