This release focuses on the physical geography and geology of the three states, and contains 20 layers of information, which can be superimposed, mixed and rearranged in any desired combination.
"When people think of geology, they often think about the American West, but the Eastern states are much richer than you might assume", said Max Tardiveau, president and founder of Integrity Logic. "We're particularly excited about the surface geology layer, which is remarkably detailed, and meshes beautifully with the glacial boundary layer, which shows the limit of advance of the last few glacial ages."
Like its sister applications Geology CA, which covers California, and Geology TX, which covers Texas, Geology NY contains a number of data layers which can be combined and moved in any desired way:
- geological map from the U.S. Geological Service
- detailed surface geology
- states outlines
- land elevation from NASA
- ocean bathymetry from NOAA
- all 122 earthquakes in recorded history with a magnitude of
3.0 or greater
- ancient faults and glacial boundaries
- county lines, USGS quadrangles
- UTM zones, state plane zones
- urban areas, hydrological features
- cities, roads and railroad tracks
- 394 active mines and quarries
- all 321 available potassium/argon dates
- main aquifers
Geology NY 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 NY 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.
The application is available immediately in the Apple App Store and is priced at $9.99.
