get_unitList

Usage
get_unitList(x = NULL)
Arguments
x

an emld object

Details

If no unitList is provided, the function reads in the eml-unitDictionary defining all standard units and unitTypes. This provides a convenient way to look up standard units and their EML-recognized names when defining metadata, e.g. in the table passed to `set_attributes()`.

Value

a list with two data.frames: "units", a table defining unit names, types, and conversions to SI, and "unitTypes", defining the type of unit. For instance, the unit table could define "Hertz" as a unit of unitType frequency, and the unitType define frequency as a type whose dimension is 1/time.
