InfoEx offers flexibility by allowing each operation a choice over unit preferences. These control the default unit during observation entry and which unit is consistently displayed in reports.

There is a single field with unit preferences for Canadian and Swedish subscribers and OGRS operations in the International system (Wind Speed Unit in Weather Observations).

There is a large choice of unit preferences between U.S. Customary Units (Imperial) and metric for SWAG operations in the International system.

This page describes how an Operation Administrator can specify the unit preferences for the operation.
