    Anyone figure out how to use a topographic map and a drawing program together for geologic mapping? All the tools are here they just need to be put together. JD

    Hmmm, geologist are not technologists? Could be, maybe that is why I changed fields. I was the Only geologist that actually washed my truck. I should have known. JD

    Hi. I’m an italian geologist and I’m actually workin with iPad in the field for a geological map project together with the University of Geology of Genoa (IT).
    During fieldwork I collect different kind of geological information (outcrops, measure, notes, photo, sample, etc) and I simply manage all these data with an amazing cartoghraphic&GIS app with iPad.
    Ipad and iPhone technologies are very useful for this type of geological fieldwork!!!

    The moment I saw the iPad, I knew it was finally a replacement for the field notebook. I am no longer a working geologist, but on vacation I find myself mapping the strata and wanting to use the topographic maps on my iPad as a base.

    What is the name of the app? Can I get a copy anywhere?
