Before i found this i was collecting the data via a SD card, on the Netduino.
I read almost every day Hackaday here i stumbled up at http://hackaday.com/2012/05/31/data-logging-directly-to-google-docs-google-drive/
But this didn't work for me, but i knew i was on the right trail.
After a lot of googleling it worked for me, this (story) is how i did it.
I have tried to simply the whole thing in only text, with links to more relevant documents.
Please ask in the comments and i will try to answer these.
If something relevant is asked i maybe will change this instructable to clarify some streps, so please read first then ask.
This way of collecting is also useful with writing software with a database, you don't need a server with SQL or other language.
Step 1: Filling a spreadsheet
After hitting the Submit button on this form the URL is send to Google docs:
When you change the URL with the right values then you can send your data from a micro-controller or software to the spreadsheet.
Step 2: Use Google docs to collect data of a micro controller.
Login and go in google docs to new-->form
Very importantvVia this form the data is collected and put in the spreadsheet.
No form, No spreadsheet.
For every parameter you will follow, make a field.
(# means a number
: means "this will be" "in the URL")
Text field : entry.#.single
textarea : entry.#.single
radio : entry.#.group // Same group number belongs to the same group.
checkbox : entry.#.group // Same group number belongs to the same group. entry.3.group=value1&entry.3.group=value2
option/select : entry.#.single
scale : based on type radio on a row
grid : based on type radio in a grid
The most used fields would be a text field for values and radio button for boolean.
