Package org.apache.sis.measure
Units of measurements, values related to measurement (like angles and ranges) and their formatters.
A key class in this package is
Units
, which provides static constants
for about 50 units of measurement including all the SI base units
(metre,
kilogram
second,
ampere,
kelvin,
mole and
candela)
together with some derived units
(square metre,
cubic metre,
metres per second,
hertz,
pascal,
newton,
joule,
watt,
tesla,
etc.)
and some dimensionless units
(radian,
steradian,
pixel,
unity).
In relation to units of measurement, this package also defines:
 Quantities
as a
double
value value associated to aUnit
instance. Angle
and its subclasses (Longitude
,Latitude
,ElevationAngle
)Range
and its subclasses (NumberRange
,MeasurementRange
) or annotation (ValueRange
) Parsers and formatters
(
AngleFormat
,RangeFormat
,UnitFormat
)
prints "kPa", i.e. the kilo prefix has been automatically applied (SI prefixes are applied on SI units only, not on other systems). Other example:System.out.println( Units.PASCAL.multiply(1000) );
prints "8 mW" and "Instance of Power: true", i.e. Apache SIS detects that the result of N⋅m∕s is Watt, inherits the milli prefix from millimetre and creates an instance ofForce f = Quantities.create(4, Units.NEWTON); Length d = Quantities.create(6, Units.MILLIMETRE); Time t = Quantities.create(3, Units.SECOND); Quantity<?> e = f.multiply(d).divide(t); System.out.println(e); System.out.println("Instance of Power: " + (e instanceof Power));
Power
, not just Quantity<Power>
(the generic parent).
Parsing and formatting use Unicode symbols by default, as in µg/m². Parenthesis are recognized at parsing time and used for denominators at formatting time, as in kg/(m²⋅s). While uncommon, Apache SIS accepts fractional powers as in m^⅔. Some sentences like "100 feet", "square metre" and "degree Kelvin" are also recognized at parsing time.

Class Summary Class Description Angle An angle in decimal degrees.AngleFormat Parses and formats angles according a specified pattern.AngleFormat.Field Constants that are used as attribute keys in the iterator returned fromAngleFormat.formatToCharacterIterator(Object)
.ElevationAngle The angular height of an object measured from the horizontal plane.Latitude A latitude angle in decimal degrees.Longitude A longitude angle in decimal degrees.MeasurementRange<E extends Number & Comparable<? super E>> A range of numbers associated with a unit of measurement.NumberRange<E extends Number & Comparable<? super E>> A range of numbers capable of widening conversions when performing range operations.Quantities Provides static methods working onQuantity
instances.Range<E extends Comparable<? super E>> A set of minimum and maximum values of a certain class, allowing a user to determine if a value of the same class is contained inside the range.RangeFormat Parses and formatsRange
instances according the given locale.RangeFormat.Field Constants that are used as attribute keys in the iterator returned fromRangeFormat.formatToCharacterIterator(Object)
.UnitFormat Parses and formats units of measurement as SI symbols, URI in OGC namespace or other symbols.Units Provides constants for various Units of Measurement together with static methods working onUnit
instances.UnitServices The central point from which all unit services (parsing, formatting, listing, etc) can be obtained. 
Enum Summary Enum Description UnitFormat.Style Identify whether unit formatting uses ASCII symbols, Unicode symbols or full localized names. 
Annotation Types Summary Annotation Type Description ValueRange The range of values assignable to a field, or to a JavaBean property.
