Before any measurements can be carried out in an image, it must first be clarified how such dimensions are brought about. It is explained that dimensions most likely to be used such as areas, perimeters and Euler numbers, must be defined in such a way that no conflicts in logic can arise. This paper explains basic considerations which have to be made prior to any measurement and the consequences of tessellating the Euclidean plane.
