Read GPS data from thingspeak and show it in the Google map using ESP12e Nodemcu and GPS Neo 6M Module

Creating Thingspeak channel for storing GPS data received from ESP12E NodeMCU Module

In the previous tutorial, we setup the ESP12E NodeMCU Module on breadboard along with GPS Neo 6M Module step by step. In this tutorial, we are going to Create Thingspeak channel for storing GPS data received from ESP12E NodeMCU Module. So lets get started.

I am assuming that you already have a thingspeak account. If not then visit https://thingspeak.com/ and create your account. And follow the below process:

  1. Got to "Channels" and click on "New Channel".

2. Then Enter following details as shown in the below image.

4. Now your channel has been successfully created. Click on your created channel and then click on "API Keys" tab and you will get the following details:
*Channel ID - 1
*Write API Key - 2
*Read API Key - 3

Which will be used by us for writing, reading the data on/from thingspeak server. So copy and pasted it on a notepad file and keep it ready.

That's it for this lesson.

In the next chapter, we will program our ESP12E-NodeMCU-Module to upload the data on the thingspeak server and there we can see the data in the graph format. Click on the next chapter to visit and start off with the next chapter.

  • Sravya k

    #include “ThingSpeak.h” no such file or directory it is showing … in the part 2 of the project can u please suggest me the idea how to include that file …. kindly do the needfull.

    • Please install the library first. Read the tutorial carefully.
