Acceleration to position.

I am using accelerometers (+/-2g) in an inertial navigation system. The input voltage is proportional to the acceleration.

The aim is to produce a map of XY coordinates. I also want to be able to plot events at the coordinates they occur at. Something like an intensity chart where the colour indicates the strength of the event would be ideal.

I am new to labview and have been struggling to get to grips with the program. In particular I have been having problems with the "integral(x)" vi which seems to require an array containing the waveform before any calculation is carried out. I am looking for a solution that instantly converts the input acceleration signal to a position. Can anyone help point me in the right direction?

I just upgraded to LV6.1 and i believe the new Point-To_Point routines are something you should take a look at.
It's specially for real-time streaming data applications.
