"This is our best release so far," said Max Tardiveau, Integrity Logic's founder. "We have added a lot of information, such as public lands and seismic hazard, and that makes the application even more useful. It gives you a whole new perspective on the landscape around you. You have to see it in action to really understand the power of this approach."
Like its sister applications Geology CA, Geology TX, Geology NY and Geology FL, Geology WA contains a wide array of data layers which can be combined and moved in any desired way. Each layer contains additional information which can be brought up with a simple tap on the screen.
- geological map from the U.S. Geological Service
- public land ownership (local, state, federal)
- states outlines
- all 1,930 earthquakes in recorded history with a magnitude of 3.0 or above
- seismic hazard
- land elevation from NASA
- ocean bathymetry from NOAA
- 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
- plate boundaries

Geology WA 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 WA 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.
