Gis for the iPhone : Arizona
Apple has just approved (in record time - 9 days) the Arizona version of our GIS app, imaginatively named Geology AZ.
It contains 23 layers of data, which can be superimposed, mixed and rearranged in any desired combination. We have a quick video demonstrating some of the basic functions.
The layers include:
- geological map from the U.S. Geological Service
- public land ownership (local, state, federal)
- states outlines
- all earthquakes in recorded history with a magnitude of 3.0 or above
- fire history
- land elevation from NASA
- hydrologic units
- county lines, USGS quadrangles
- UTM zones, state plane zones
- township and range
- urban areas, hydrological features
- cities, roads and railroad tracks
- active mines and quarries
- all available potassium/argon dates
- main aquifers
- old faults and active faults
- over 13,000 mineral resource data points
Geology AZ is a completely self-contained application, which does not require any Internet access. This is critical for anyone who needs access to this information when out of cellular range, in the field.
Geology AZ can use the iPhone's built-in GPS and the iPod's location service, and can also capture high-definitions maps, which can be retrieved from the device's photo album.
