Some GlobalLab projects require precise measurements of natural or human phenomena. We use probes to measure and capture this information. The following explains how to submit data to Report Forms using probes that GlobalLab does not support and those that GlobalLab does support.
You can use probes from any manufacturer with GlobalLab. However, you will need to manually enter the data, except for probes that GlobalLab specifically supports. These are probes from Fourier and Globisens. With probes from these two manufacturers, you can autostream, or directly upload data, to the GlobalLab database.
To autostream data from Globisens Labdisc probes, you need to have the GlobiLab application that came with the Labdisc package installed on your computer. Then, to upload the data obtained from these probes to the GlobalLab database, do the following:
Use the MultiLab program (included in your Fourier sensor package) to submit data directly to GlobalLab. You need a device that runs Mac OS, Windows, or Linux.
If you want to make a project that requires some data from probes or sensors, you need to add a special question(s) to your project Report Form.
To do so you will need to click on Add a question button in your project draft Report Form and then select Sensor or probe input from the Type of question dropdown menu.
