For my particular application I have to use the EVAL-ADXRS646Z.

How can I determine postion from simply measuring the output?

There is no need to apologize!

I offered some tips on the interface part of this discussion in the following thread:

How to Usea an EVAL-ADXRS646Z Gyroscope

With respect to calculating angle from the rate of rotation measurement, that is pretty simple: just integration the rate of rotation over time to generate the angle estimate. You cannot do this indefinitely, because the bias error in the rate signal will cause a drift in the angle estimation over time.

Figure 2 of this article offers a conceptual view of how gyroscopes and accelerometers can contribute to pitch and roll angel estimation.

I hope that this helps and look forward to any further questions that you have on this topic.
