iGeology - Interactive geological mapping of the UK.

iGeology is for anyone who wants to explore the local geology, at street-level scale, virtually anywhere in the UK. Amateur geologists, walkers, gardeners and anyone else with an interest in rocks and landscape.

Find out about the rocks at the surface (superficial deposits) or the bedrock beneath.
Discover boreholes drilled in your area and look at their log records.
Use GPS to zoom to your location.
Search on place names or postcodes.
Show a 3D view of the geological landscape.

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
5% of 1:50000 scale data is unavailable for England, Scotland and Wales.
Only 1:625 000 scale data is available for Northern Ireland.

Recent changes:
Version 4.1 and 4.2 December 2013
Fixed map Linear Features display problems.
Made GPS optional so it will install on non-GPS tablets.

Version 4.0 April 2013
New map layers added: boreholes and linear features.
Links from boreholes to scanned borehole log images.

Good app Great for checking your geological units while you're away from the office and your maps. Can be a bit fiddly on a smaller phone.

But map for smartphone Awesome, but.... BGS please make this available to download/an offline map so the map is available when there's no mobile signal. Interesting geology often equals the middle of nowhere!

Good but drains battery power The app is informative, but.....the haptic feedback drains the battery power very quickly and there is no way to turn it off.

Geographical geologist app Wat can I say good if that's your thing but I had a quick look at the app and if that's your thing that's your thing but it's not mine so am afraid am going to give this app a miss but if I ever get a job as some kind of a surveyor looking at rocks which I want then I might have a look at the app again on rocks
