Hi,

If you think in terms of URIs, you are denoting a value with an identifier
which is:

> http://example.com/sensors/sensor1/services#Temperature

not, just "Temperature".

I would think along the lines:
> http://example.com/sensors/sensor1/services/Temperature

returns an RDF fragment which states:
<http://example.com/sensors/sensor1/>
<http://sweet.jpl.nasa.gov/2.1/propTemperature> value

Or for some reason you need just one value as return ?

ciao,
Andrea
