I am working on my first Raspberry Pi project. Its objective is to capture time-stamped GPS data. I am new to Python. As such I am looking for simplest hardware and software setup to maximize my probably of success.
I am looking for recommendations on the best way forward- specifically
1) Should I use a USB GPS sensor rather than one connected through the GPIO pins? I have been looking at this USB GPS sensor : https://goo.gl/vrtia5 , but if anyone can recommend a better option I would be appreciative.
2) Can someone recommend a step by step tutorial for the basic capturing of GPS data by Python ? From my reading, it sounds like the package 'gpsd' is useful to act as a layer between my applications and the actual GPS hardware.
3) Any other guidance would be appreciated. .I am using Python 3.4, and a Raspberry PI 3
