of Geology FL, the latest version of the GIS (Geographic Information System) for
the iPhone platform, covering the state of Florida.
This release focuses on the physical geography and geology of the Sunshine state, and
contains 24 layers of information, which can be superimposed, mixed and
rearranged in any desired combination.
"Florida turns out to have a lot of interesting geology," said Max Tardiveau, Integrity Logic's founder.
"The marine terraces, in particular, and the sinkholes, can be quite fascinating.
Most people have no idea how many sinkholes are around them."
Like its sister applications Geology CA, Geology TX, and Geology NY,
Geology FL contains a wide array of data layers which can be
combined and moved in any desired way:
- geological map from the U.S. Geological Service
- surface geology
- states outlines
- land elevation from NASA
- ocean bathymetry from NOAA
- marines terraces
- sinkholes and sinkhole type areas
- 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
- physiographic provinces
- hydrologic units
Geology FL 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. A brief video of the application in action can be seen here.
Geology FL 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 $4.99.
