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.

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

Excellent app for the geologically inquisitive Lovely use of geological mapping made available to my phone. Can be hungry on data use and battery, but that may just be the way that answering one question provokes another...
