The Vernier GPS Sensor collects real-time latitude, longitude, and altitude data when connected to an original LabQuest or to a computer running Logger Pro. Not for use with LabQuest 2.

Description

The Vernier GPS Sensor allows your students to easily create maps of their data. It is a powerful tool for environmental studies when you want to know the location of your sampling sites, or when studying motion, velocity, and acceleration over long distances.

  • Connects directly to the USB port on a computer or the original LabQuest.
  • See real-time graphs of latitude vs. longitude, or use Logger Pro software (Windows only, sold separately) to export the data to various mapping programs, including Google Maps or ArcGIS.
