Before I can start programming a compass, I need to know what data my sensors will report. I sketched up a Blockly program to display raw data on the screen. I went down the list of IMU data starting with Get X and Get Y.

I kept track of the output and how it related to the unit in the physical realm. Get X and Get Y output the most user-friendly rotation data and tell how what angle the device is from -180 to 180. There are also the accelerometer and gyroscope outputs called ACC and Gyr accordingly. The ACC versions of X, Y, and Z relate to rotational angles but from 0 to 1, but the Gyr versions output roll, pitch, and yaw.
