Now Geology NY on iPhone

17 August 2009

Oakland, CA — Integrity Logic announced the release of Geology NY, a new version of the GIS for the iPhone platform, covering the New York area. 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.

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 limits
- 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.
