Description

Easily use and manipulate unit-aware measurement objects in Python. `django.contrib.gis.measure <https://github.com/django/django/blob/master/django/contrib/gis/measure.py>`_ has these wonderful 'Distance' objects that can be used not only for storing a unit-aware distance measurement, but also for converting between different units and adding/subtracting these objects from one another. This module not only provides those Distance (Length) and Area measurement objects, but also other measurements including Weight, Volume, and Temperature. .. warning:: Measurements are stored internally by converting them to a floating-point number of a (generally) reasonable SI unit. Given that floating-point numbers are very slightly lossy, you should be aware of any inaccuracies that this might cause. TLDR: Do not use this in `navigation algorithms guiding probes into the atmosphere of extraterrestrial worlds <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mars_Climate_Orbiter>`_.
