ASDF Unit Schemas

The ASDF Unit Schemas define a set of schemas for serializing the units defined by astropy.units for the ASDF file format. These schemas are based upon the schemas in the ASDF Standard and are packaged for use by the ASDF library.


This is only a schema package, to use these schemas to serialize astropy units, one must install the asdf-astropy package.

Included Resources

The following are listings of all the schemas provided by this package for ASDF.


Typically, schemas are used in ASDF via their tag, which can be found in the manifest. Using a transform in ASDF it is recommended that you use the tag instead of a direct reference to the schema. When doing so make sure you are using the correct manifest version.
