At this point
upoints only exists to assist the users who have been using
it for years, I absolutely do not recommend its use to new users.
:mod:`upoints` is a collection of GPL v3 licensed modules for working with points on Earth, or other near spherical objects. It allows you to calculate the distance and bearings between points, mangle xearth/xplanet data files, work with online UK trigpoint databases, NOAA's weather station database and other such location databases.
Previous versions of :mod:`upoints` were called
the name was changed as it no longer reflected the majority of uses the
packages was targeted at.
