A major goal of Public Laboratory is to produce simple and easy guides to construct many of our low-cost tools. Here are some of the illustrated guides, tutorials, and other supporting materials we've put together so far:

Illustrated Guides to Grassroots Mapping with balloons and kites

  • - Our first illustrated guide attempts to thoroughly explain how to construct and use a balloon mapping kit.
  • Grassroots Mapping Guide 2.0, (1mb pdf) - This improved version of the guide is more concise (prints on 4 pages, or a single 11x17 sheet, double sided) and has been updated with more recent, simpler, more reliable techniques. It is available for anyone to edit or modify as a Google Doc.


Spectrometer Guides

In progress

We're constantly improving and exploring new ways of documenting and disseminating our designs. Here are some prototypes and planning pages:

  • T-shirt guide - A t-shirt with instructions for balloon mapping printed on it.
