This report explores the processes involved in metrology, the science of measurement. It concentrates on measurements that are made of continuous data streams. Measurement is seen as a process of data compression, performed sometimes to reduce the bandwidth needed in communication and sometimes to reduce storage space for the results of measurements. Importantly, it is shown that the result of a measurement should be viewed as having meaning.
