Good morning Jano,
[...] He and I are having a disagreement about ssn:Property mapping to 
QUDT. The rdfs:comment says that ssn:Property is intrinsic to an entity, 
which would suggest that it is most equivalent to qudt:QuantityKind. But 
if I look at the rdfs:comment for ssn:Condition (which subclasses 
ssn:Property), and published examples, then I see that ssn:Condition 
relates a property, a value, and a unit, which seems more like a 
qudt:QuantityValue. A subclass that can represent value would suggest 
that the parent can represent value, so I am confused. We can go either 
way, but if the intention of the ssn:Property definition is one way or 
the other, then of course we would want to honor that intention.
Comments?
Best regards,
Dr. Jack Hodges
