Short summary
We propose a framework that can guide the development, application, and interpretation of different forms of measurement. Using temperature measurements as a case study, we demonstrate the need for a distinction between different measurements based on their different uncertainties and provide prescriptive language and measures that can aid a researcher's ability to assess data from different measurements. This framework can apply to a wide range of proxy measurements and fields of science.
