Integrity Logic just announced the release of Geology CA, the first GIS for the iPhone platform.
This initial release focuses on the geology of California, and contains 19 layers of information, which can be superimposed, mixed and rearranged in any desired combination.

The application packs a surprising amount of information in a relatively small footprint:

- complete geological map from USGS
- states outline of California and adjacent states
- land elevation from NASA
- ocean bathymetry from USGS
- all 3,156 California earthquakes in recorded history with a magnitude of
4.0 or greater
- recent faults and plate boundaries
- county lines, USGS quadrangles, townships and ranges
- urban areas, hydrological features
- cities, roads and railroad tracks
- active and abandonned mines and quarries
- almost 2,500 potassium/argon dates

Geology CA is a completely self-contained application, and 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.

It can use the iPhone and iPod's built-in GPS, and can also capture high-definitions maps, which can be retrieved from the device's photo album.

Very cool. I wish there was an adapter that would allow me to use the GPS signal from my Garmin with an iTouch.

At 4.99$ in the IPhone AppStore, that's quite affordable... To bad I don't live in California... and having an IPhone should help too ;)

We have a version for Texas coming out, if that helps. A future version will not be limited to just one state, so stay tuned.

Very cool Max! I am wondering what sort of "tools" your application offers. I see there is a "Tools" button - can it perform any geoprocessing?
