This work consists in the construction of a system to obtain coordinates acquisition in order to allow that the path to be analyzed subsequently. For the development of this system will be used a microcontroller of Arduino Uno board, a GPS module compatible of this board, antenna, module SD card, button and leds. The Arduino Uno board will be used to perform communication with GPS module (via I2C communication) and with the SD card memory module (also via I2C communication), besides to control all the system. The button will be used to turn on and/or turn off the recording mode and the leds for operation signaling. After getting to do the communication with the GPS module, SD card and antenna, the coordinates will be acquired. Through these coordinates will be possible to analyze the path taken by drone, as well as other GPS data, such as, altitud, speed, date and time. The information will be formatted in a TXT type file, in order to be possible import them using Google Earth tools for geographic visualization.
