Description

"The ultimate app for Geography/Geology amateurs and professionals."

- Mel Martin, TUAW.com

Geology NV is the edition of the popular GIS (geographic information system) covering the state of Nevada. It is a self-contained application (no Internet or cellular access required) that contains a vast amount of information about the geology and geography of Nevada. Using the iPhone's GPS, it enables you to navigate the state and get a much better understanding of your surroundings, identify geological formations, mines, quarries, rivers, etc....

This release contains 26 layers, which can be combined in any desired way:

- states outlines

- the complete geological map from USGS

- terrain elevation

- zip codes

- almost 8, 000 named features (summits, tunnels, cliffs, bridges, etc...)

- fire history

- ancient lakes

- all 1, 788 earthquakes in recorded history over 3.0 magnitude

- over 15, 000 mineral resources

- active mines

- quaternary faults

- old faults

- public land ownership

- hydrologic units

- USGS quadrangles

- township and range

- urban areas

- counties

- hydrology

- roads and major streets

- railroad tracks

- cities and towns

- over 2, 000 potassium/argon dates

- state plane zones

- UTM zones

- main aquifers

Each layer contains additional information about each feature. For instance, the geology layer has a description of the unit's name, age range, rock type, and description. Each mine has a name, a commodity, a facility type, and a company name. See our web site for more information about each layer.

There have been a number of improvements since the release of the sister programs covering CA, TX, NY/NJ/CT, FL, WA/OR, AZ, CO and UT. A new layer (ancient lakes) has been added. A few bugs have been fixed.

Cool

:
I don't know much about geology but I am really enjoying this app with all its different layers. One that got my attention was the "Ancient lakes" layer, which shows where lakes used to be (where there is only dry lake beds now). I've done some racing on those lake beds and I have to admit I had no idea how big they used to be. Recommended for those who like to understand the world around them. Don't be intimidated by the name (which is misleading). This app can be used and enjoyed by anyone with half a brain.

5/5 stars

The iPhone continues to surprise me

:
Just when you think you've seen it all on the iPhone, you run across a little diamond like this -- a GIS with all kinds of information about geology, hydrology, mines, and even prehistoric lakes. All that data is nicely integrated so you can display it by combining the different layers. It works with the GPS, which is nice when you're moving around. It is all built-in so you don't need to have coverage for the app to work. A wonderful surprise.

5/5 stars

A lovely app

:
I'm not a geologist, but this app is really quite lovely to look at. There is actually a certain artistic aspect to all these colors, layers and whatnot. Apart from that, it's also pretty cool when you're driving across the state.
