You make it clear in your article that schätzen is not just for estimating a monetary value, but all kinds of numeric values – temperatures, sizes, time etc.
The first meaning listed here in the dictionary is “to estimate the value (For an old watch for instance)”

So, I thought maybe modifying the definition in the dictionary would clarify the word a bit. As it’s written, the definition makes you think that it’s just about monetary values.
