How much data each time, and how often?wmkhizer wrote:oh sorry for that..
im currently working on a project using a GPS (ublox neo 6m).
I've connected the GPS to GPIO ports and it work okay. i wanted to collect & save all the data that it receives.
so i was just wondering how to do that..
Sorry for the late reply, i just want to simply store it for later processing.DougieLawson wrote:Are you going to decode the NMEA sentences or simply store those for later processing?
Do you want to use a flat file, a comma separated variables file (which you can load in LibreOffice Calc or Excel), or a database of some description?
Are you tracking a walker or a rocket? What precision do you need (that is, what distance error can you tolerate before updating)?wmkhizer wrote:How much data each time, and how often?
i'm not quite sure. Every few seconds? How would you recommend?
Code: Select all
sudo pip3 install pyserial
