• Zero or Reverse sensor readings
• Support for additional sensors including Vernier Colorimeter.
• Configurable data collection rate and duration for time-based data collection.
• Support for high-speed data collection when using a LabQuest interface.
• Optional triggering of time-based data collection based on sensor value.
• Manual entry of data from keyboard and clipboard.
• Shared data collection using Vernier’s Connected Science System®—use LabQuest® 2 or a computer running Logger Pro® software as a source of data for Graphical Analysis, for data collection from any of over 80 compatible Vernier sensors.
• .ambl file format for exchange with Graphical Analysis 4 on macOS, Windows, and other Chromebooks
• Data analysis features such as curve fits and statistics
• Graph match feature for use with Motion Detector
• Draw predictions on graphs
• Graph annotations
• Change display units on supported sensors
• Localization for German, Spanish, French and Russian
Sensor data collection with Graphical Analysis requires the purchase of hardware from Vernier Software & Technology; manual entry of data can be performed without a hardware purchase. Data collection with Graphical Analysis can be performed with a compatible Vernier interface and compatible sensor, Vernier Go!Temp, Vernier Go!Motion, or with Vernier Data Sharing Sources via Wi-Fi. Students then use Graphical Analysis to create graphs, modify scaling, make selections, create annotations and captions, and perform analysis with statistics and curve fits.
Supported USB devices for data collection
• Vernier Go!Temp temperature sensor
• Vernier Go!Motion motion detector
• Vernier Go!Link interface
• Vernier LabQuest, LabQuest 2, LabQuest Stream, and LabQuest Mini interfaces
• Support for additional sensors and data collection modes will be added soon
Supported Data Sharing sources
• Vernier LabQuest 2 interface
• Vernier Logger Pro 3 software running on Windows or Macintosh
Lab group data-collection features (when used with LabQuest 2 or Logger Pro)
• Connect multiple students to a single source via wireless Data Sharing.
• Collect data from multiple sensors simultaneously.
• Remote start/stop of data collection.
• Over 80 compatible sensors.
• Display sensor data as graphs or in a table.
