Scaling

How the characteristics of an object change as you change the size of your measuring device. For a three dimensional object, it could be the volume of an object covered as you increase the radius of a covering sphere. In a times series, it could be the change in the amplitude of the time series as you increase the increment of time.

Scaling

The change in size of a measurable object accomplished when one of its dimensions is enlarged or shrunk. For example, given a rectangle, if one changes the length and/or width, this will by definition change the measure of its area.
