Australian Geology Travel Maps is a phone app that operates offline in the field (ie. without a connection to the internet) and delivers interactive geology maps - tap on the map, and information about the geology at that location is displayed. The geology, terrain, roads, rivers, lakes, towns, rural localities, contours, national parks, forestry reserves, indigenous reserves, and bush-walking tracks for the entire Australian continent are shown on the maps.
A unique feature is the ability for the app to talk to you as you are driving, informing you about the geology whenever there is a change. This is very effective at familiarising you with the geology in an area, and we strongly suggest that you try out this feature during your trial period.
In addition to simplified (GA 1:1 million) geology travel maps, detailed geology maps for all states - Western Australia (1:100k & 1:500k), New South Wales ('seamless'), South Australia (1:100k), Queensland (1:100k & 1:250k), Northern Territory (1:500k) Tasmania (1:25k & 1:250k), and Victoria (1:50k & 1:250k) - are available, using the best available data from the state geological surveys. And only 3 clicks to download any of the 360+ phone maps published by the Geological Survey of NSW.
Resource overlays are available for every state. Depending on the state, this includes information on the location of metals, minerals, gems, building stone and quarries.
You can download total magnetic intensity (TMI 1VD) images for all of the states, and overlay these as transparencies above the geology maps.
Download and display data on petroleum, mining and exploration leases and mineral deposits. This is also interactive - tap on the data point or shape boundary and data for that feature is displayed in a list. You can also import your own GIS data into the app, and store tens of thousands of features on your phone, that can be retrieved for display later when you are in the field without internet access.
Import your own MBTiles maps – interactive or non-interactive - for example, created with MapTiler or Tilemill. Any interactive MBTiles map becomes a talking map with this app.
The app has a yearly subscription, called 'AGTM core functionalities'. This gives you access to up-to-date simplified and detailed geology terrain maps created by Trilobite Solutions, the ability to download and display up-to-date petroleum, mining and exploration lease and resources data on your phone, a system that speaks to you as you travel telling you about changes in geology. the ability to record your trails and observations and export these to Google Earth, other phones/tablets or your GIS, and the ability to import MBTiles map files and GIS data. On subscribing for the first time, there is an automatic 1-WEEK FREE TRIAL, giving you plenty of time to check this app out in the field before committing to a purchase.
Note the one subscription enables you to run the app on all your iPhones/iPads. It is useful to have it installed on an iPad, for the larger viewing area, as well as your iPhone, for the portability and convenience in the field.
When in the field, please PUT YOUR PHONE INTO FLIGHT MODE. This greatly extends your phone's battery life.
