Wireless Weather Sensor with GPS (Local Stock)

Product Code: PS-3209-LS


Go beyond tracking weather

Analyze trends to create understanding

The Wireless Weather Sensor with GPS is an all-in-one instrument for monitoring environmental conditions. A built-in anemometer as well as sensing elements for temperature, humidity, pressure, light, and GPS the sensor provides up to 19 different measurements that can be used individually or simultaneously.

Use the sensor in logging mode with the optional Weather Vane Accessory for long-term monitoring, or use it as a hand-held instrument to study microclimates and record ambient conditions relevant to many biological and environmental phenomena.

Conduct GIS/mapping experiments using the onboard GPS sensor in conjunction with any of the other available measurements. The new map display in PASCO software provides a way for students to analyze spatial data.

Best of all, even with the versatility and functionality available, the Wireless Weather Sensor with GPS is simple and intuitive for students to use.

Note:  The anemometer can only be used in winds at or below the max speed rating. Using it in hurricane-level winds or with a leaf blower can damage the unit.

SPARKvue is now compatible with ArcGIS, allowing for GPS data analysis and visualization. Students can also export their data and load it into a map at ArcGIS.com.
