See the Buying Guide for this item's required, recommended, and additional accessories.
The Wireless Weather Sensor is an all-in-one instrument for monitoring complex environmental conditions. It houses several sensing elements within a single unit to provide 19 different measurements. Use the sensor in logging mode with the Weather Vane Accessory for long-term monitoring, or use it as a handheld instrument to study microclimates and record ambient conditions relevant to environmental phenomena. You can wirelessly export data to your device for classroom analysis and group activities that are constrained by time. With the built-in GPS, you can collect location data for student investigations and analyze it on the map display, powered by ESRI ArcGIS, within SPARKvue software.
