What if you could hold all of Texas in the palm of your hand?
Geology TX is the Texas edition of the first GIS for the iPhone. It is a self-contained application (no Internet or cellular access required) that contains a vast amount of information about the physical geography and geology of Texas.
This release contains 29 layers, which can be combined in any desired way:
- states outlines
- the complete geological map from USGS
- terrain elevation
- bathymetry (ocean depth)
- USGS quadrangles
- quaternary faults
- older faults
- all earthquakes of magnitude 3.0 and above
- urban areas
- roads and major streets
- all train tracks
- all cities and towns
- active mines
- potassium/argon dates
- state plane zones
- UTM zones
- vegetation zones
- river basins
- public lands
- zip codes
- fire history
- ecological regions
- hydrological units
- named features
- mineral resources
- annual precipitation.
While this is a professional-grade tool, it can be enjoyed by anyone who likes to understand the world around them.
