Arduino GPS data logger (Part 1)


GPS data logger

One of my favorite things that has to do with computers is tracking and data logging. My latest project is a GPS data logger based on an Arduino Uno. This is my first project with the flexible Ardunio platform.

The idea is simple. Connect an Arduino Uno to a GPS and have the Arduino log my position data to an SD card. Take the data from the SD card and upload it to Google maps to draw a map of all the places that I've been. Eventually, the system will connect to the 3G data network and report the information live, but that will be part 2.

Listed below is everything that you need to make your own GPS data logger.
