To learn more about the modern metric system, you might want to visit the SI Navigator web site. It provides a large amount of information and has links to many other good sites.

Throughout the history of industrialization, people have been trying to limit the number of measurement systems in use so that today, only two systems, inch-pound and metric, predominate in the industrial nations. Since its inception two centuries ago, the metric system has been gaining ground while all the others have been losing.

The pressure for unification on one system is mounting. For over a decade, ours has been the last and only country that remains uncommitted to the unification in the sense that no nationwide mandate for metric that includes the private sector has been established. Individual industries, societies and organizations have, however, been making steps to adopt metric for some time.
