sensor in an altimeter"

Yeah, sorry, I thought it was the temperature of the pressure sensor 
that was needed in the equation, not the ambient temp. Regardless, I'm
 not really interested about the specifics of this particular sensor, 
but more about defining a framework for secondary values. for 
instance, what do you do in J5 in such cases? Do you expose secondary 
data points provided by the sensor or not?
