receiving, at a base station, an indication of a measurement type from a wireless communication device;
receiving, at the base station, a first wireless transmission pertaining to a first measurement performed by the wireless
communication device;

in response to the received transmission, obtaining a value of a second measurement of the measurement type, wherein the second
measurement is performed by a sensor associated with the base station; and

determining a value of the first measurement based on the received transmission and the value of the second measurement performed
by the sensor associated with the base station;

wherein determining a value of the first measurement based on the received transmission and the second measurement comprises:
deciding based on the received transmission and the value of the second measurement whether to request a second wireless transmission
pertaining to the first measurement;

requesting the second wireless transmission from the wireless communication device; and
determining the value of the first measurement based on the second wireless transmission; and
wherein deciding based on the received transmission and the second measurement whether to request the second wireless transmission
comprises:
