Geo Data Logger: Arduino+GPS+SD+Accelerometer to log, time-stamp, and geo-tag sensor data

Posted on Tuesday, November 20th, 2012 in Arduino, Prototypes, sensors by DP

This Instructable  describes a prototype of a road condition scanner using Arduino + GPS + SD + Accelerometer designed by TechBitar:

I thought it would be educational to build a prototype that I can take on the road to log, geo-tag, and time-stamp sensors data to be analyzed later with mapping and data analyses applications.  So I figured why not start with a gadget that can log road conditions. This prototype, the Bump-O-Meter, measures road conditions by using an Arduino, a GPS receiver, an SD card, and an accelerometer sensor.

This prototype is a generic sensor logging/geo-tagging gadget which means the accelerometer can be replaced with any other sensor(s) to log anything anywhere.

    Greetings

    I would like to control in small plane through GPS map ,knowing i am using Arduino Can you help me in it please.
