     3  * A measure property, which indicates which metric of the space it supplies e.g. cell areas.
     4  * A units property consistent with the measure property e.g. `m2`.
     5  * A numeric array of metric values whose shape is determined by the domain axes in the order listed, optionally omitting any domain axes of size one. The array must all be of the same data type. It is assumed that the metric does not depend on any of the domain axes of the field which are not specified, along which the values are implicitly propagated.
