How do I use Voyager's Magnetometer?

PocketLab Voyager's magnetometer can be used to measure the strength of a magnetic field along three axes.

Measure magnetic fields
If the direction of an axis of the magnetometer is aligned with the direction of the magnetic field, the strength of the magnetic field will increase along that axis. Can you find the north and south side of a magnet on your refrigerator?
