    Detailed Description

    Unit is a base class for measurement classes such as LinearUnit, AngularUnit, and AreaUnit. Many function parameters only accept specific types of measurement to reduce the chance of accidental use of inappropriate values, but some generic functions accept all unit types, such as for translation from ID to text description.

    LinearUnit - Projected coordinate systems define coordinates using linear measurements, for example using meters or miles. They are also used to return distance measurements, for example by some members of GeometryEngine.

    AngularUnit - Geographic coordinate systems define coordinates using angular measurements, for example using degrees or radians.

    AreaUnit - Projected coordinate systems define area units for two dimensional measurements such as the area enclosed by a ring, for example in acres or square kilometers.

    Linear, angular, and area units can be defined by using enumerations of the most common units of measurement. They can also be defined by well-known identifier (wkid) or well-known text (wkText). Create the unit instances using the Unit base class or the subtype, passing in the enumeration for a specific unit of measurement.

    Each instance has properties for the unit name (singular, plural and abbreviated) and provides methods for unit conversion between different units of measurement in the same category of measurement. All unit names and abbreviations are returned in the English language.

    Create Unit instances using the subtypes, passing in the enumeration for a specific unit of measurement. Custom unit implementations are not supported.

    Instances of Unit are immutable.
