Unit of (numeric) data and accompanying metadata

Every measurement (or calculation) produces (raw) data that are useless without additional information, such as experimental parameters. This additional information is termed metadata. A dataset is the unit of (numerical) data and metadata. Another integral aspect is the history containing all relevant information regarding each single processing step performed on the data of the dataset. This is the idea behind self-documenting routines.
