Decimalisation or decimalization is the conversion of a measurement system to units of decimal (base ten) form, instead of traditional units of other forms, such as those formed by successive doubling or halving. For example, a series of (1000, 100, 10, 1, 0.1, 0.01, 0.001) instead of (16, 8, 4, 2, 1, 12, 14, 18, 116, 132, 164). Thus the word may refer to:

  • Decimalisation of currencies
  • Decimalisation of physical measurements (such as distance or weight), intimately bound historically with metrication
  • Decimalisation of time units
