This is where I'll be posting information about istSOS-Support of Unit Of Measure conversion in istSOS3 GSoC 2018 project to the OSGeo community.


istSOS2 Main Page

The aim of my project primarily is to add conversion of the unit of measure in istSOS3. The user can convert unit in another specified unit. For Unit of measure conversion in istSOS3 we will add pint libraries which has a powerful feature of unit conversion along with many specified functions like pressure, temperature, height, velocity, distance, humidity and rain unit conversion function instantly.


istSOS2 Added extenstion Data analysis

istSOS has gone through a lot of improvements since 2009. This has somehow affected the simplified interaction with measurements and SOS service settings.


Title: istSOS-Support of Unit Of Measure conversion in istSOS3.

Student: Rahul Chauhan

Mentors: Massimiliano Cannata, Milan Antonovic.


The development process can be monitored at the following links:

Implementation details


Pint is a Python package to define, operate and manipulate physical quantities: the product of a numerical value and a unit of measurement. It allows arithmetic operations between them and conversions from and to different units. It runs in Python 2.7 and 3.3+ with no other dependency. It supports a lot of numpy mathematical operations without monkey patching or wrapping numpy.
