“iGeology – Interactive geological mapping of the UK.
iGeology is for anyone who wants to explore their local geology, at street-level scale, virtually anywhere in the UK.
Amateur geologists, walkers and gardeners can look at what’s in their local area, to find out about the rocks at the surface (superficial deposits) or the bedrock beneath.
Search on place names or the postcode where you live, then click on the map and reveal the rocks beneath your feet. iGeology will locate your iPhone or iPad (if GPS is enabled) and zoom to your location.
The maps use the British Geological Survey’s national scale (1:625 000) and ‘Landranger’ scale (1:50 000) geological datasets of the United Kingdom (UK).
Map coverage 1:50000 dataset covers almost the whole of England, Wales and Scotland. In Version 8 there is now only one map tile with no data on any theme: EW180_Knighton. Only 1:625 000 scale data is available for Northern Ireland.”
“The window is the best kind of in-flight entertainment. Track your flight with GPS – discover the world below with offline maps and POI.
Learn about the world along the path of your flight, hike, or road trip with GPS tracking. Offline geologic maps and interactive points of interest reveal the locations of fossils and georeferenced Wikipedia articles visible from your airplane window seat, road trip, or hiking trail vista.
Follow Flyover Country for updates and photos from the sky! https://www.facebook.com/flyovercountryapp/ https://twitter.com/flyovergeo https://www.instagram.com/flyovergeo/
Flyover Country is a National Science Foundation-funded offline mobile app for geoscience outreach and data discovery. The app exposes interactive geologic maps from Macrostrat.org, fossil localities from Neotomadb.org and Paleobiodb.org, Wikipedia articles, offline base maps, and the user’s current GPS determined location, altitude, speed, and heading. The app analyzes a given flight path and caches relevant map data and points of interest (POI), and displays these data during the flight, without in-flight wifi. By downloading only the data relevant to a particular flight path, cache sizes remain reasonable, allowing for a robust experience without an internet connection.
Flyover Country is not limited to the window seat of airplanes. It is also ideal for road trips, hiking, and other outdoor activities such as field trips and geologic fieldwork.
**GPS functionality is only possible from the window seat and GPS reception quality varies by device/conditions**”
“Field Geologist is an app designed to replace traditional geological field mapping notebook. It is a degital field notebook used in recording data on igneous, metamorphic and sedimentary rocks in outcrop or core sections as well as alluvial and stream sediments during geological field mapping. Field Geologist works offline and runs on consumer grade android phones and tablets. The recorded information is grouped automatically as individual projects that can be saved either internally on the device or any external drive. The data can ultimately be exported in Excel (CSV) format, saved to device, share or transferred to a PC or other devices in a single click using any transfer media such as Bluetooth, Xender, Whatsapp etc.

“Measure anything with CamToPlan! Horizontally and vertically! Length, distance, area of any surface… Measure everything with this virtual ruler and tape measure thanks to augmented reality.
Measuring a length is now easier than with a laser meter or any other measure tool. You draw your measurement lines in 3D thanks to the camera directly on the video of your phone or tablet. You export your plans in PDF, PNG or DXF. CamToPlan is the AR measuring app that brings your measures from cam…to…plan !
For personal or professional use, always measure like a pro. Thanks to Virtual Reality (VR), you can measure floors, dimensions of walls, windows, doors or a whole home in a few seconds. No more tape measure or ruler needed!
This app has infinite applications for everybody: – Personal use: the length measure app for the handyman who loves DIY ! – Real estate professionals (real estate agent, interior design decorator or designer, architect, topographer, energy adviser…): this app will help you make a floorplan of a house, apartment, a specific room of a flat. – Construction workers can use it to quickly measure jobs : concreter, tile layer, carpet fitter, painter, drywall guy, plasterer, builder, carpenter, electrician, plumber, slater… – For gardener, landscaper, swimming pool builders and maintenance, digger, earth-moving, navvy: this app also works outside – Cost estimation professionals: this length measure app can make pricing estimates, it will be a great assistant for quantity surveyor, price studies technician, economist… – Building industry: foreman, site manager or engineer can drop their tape measure and ruler to perform a quick measurement check
How does this measuring app work? It relies on ARKit by Apple. Machine learning algorithms combine the device sensors data (accelerometer, gyroscope…) with odometry which analyses in real time the video of the camera and relies on visual details of images, in order to scan the environment and find the position and rotation angle of the device.
Please note: – you can measure in metric (meters, centimeters) or imperial units (feet, inches) – the app measures distances horizontally (= on the ground) and vertically! – no need to remove the furniture from the room for measurements. The application determines the intersection between the floor and the target, even if it is hidden. – The application may have difficulty with some types of tiles. – The accuracy is not guaranteed. – you can move while performing measurements to get closer to your target point, for maximum precision, even if it is not visible and calculated by extrapolation.
