The package also includes a full weather station to allow participants to measure temperature, humidity, pressure, wind direction, wind speed, and rain fall, all of which can impact ozone levels. And participating institutions also get a netbook computer, preloaded with software to facilitate the uploading of data from the ozone monitor and weather station to the GO3 site.

Once loaded, ozone data is made available to all users via a Google Earth overlay (you must have Google Earth loaded to see it) and
