Now a Universal app for iOS 9.
Need a quick reference to the geologic time scale of Earth's history? Find out, for example, when dinosaurs ruled the world or when reptiles first appeared. This is an excellent reference for students, educators, professional geologists, or anyone interested in geology.
EASY TO USE:
This is an easy, quick way to get the names and numerical dates of each of the eons, eras, periods, epochs, and ages. Just select which view you want and then scroll through the time scale.
No internet connection required. Ideal for field use.
TWO DIFFERENT VIEWS FEATURED:
The Geologic Time Scale Without Ages shows the names of eons, eras, periods, and epochs and their corresponding dates. Touching the With Ages button adds the names of the ages within the epochs along with their corresponding dates. Information icons appear at several points on the scale. Touching each of these icons reveals additional information about which phenomenon occurred at that time such as the extinction of the dinosaurs at 66 Ma.
Updated the time scale to use the 2015 International Commission on Stratigraphy names and dates.
Ratings and Reviews
Great reference to have, offers good information. I'm glad this app has been updated and works now. The scale is intuitive and easy to use while still offering interesting information such as origins and evolution of life
I received my degree in Geology and I love using this app! It's hard to remember the dates of things, but this app really helps. It's very easy to use. Highly suggest to all professional and amateur geologists.
Disappointed. Gives dates for eons, eras, periods, epochs and ages. And gives some tips on what world was like in some. Does not give meanings or origins of names or more importantly what changes occurred to necessitate a name change. Names without context are meaningless.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
