Description

"The ultimate app for Geography/Geology amateurs and professionals."

- Mel Martin, TUAW.com

Geograph WI is the edition of the popular GIS (geographic information system) covering the state of Wisconsin. It is a self-contained application (no Internet or cellular access required) that contains a vast amount of information about the geography and geology of the Badger State. Using the iPhone's GPS, it enables you to navigate the state and get a much better understanding of your surroundings, identify geological formations, mines, rivers, school districts, etc....

This release contains 26 layers, which can be combined in any desired way:

- states outlines

- the complete geological map from USGS

- surficial materials

- terrain elevation

- zip codes

- over 3, 000 named features (summits, tunnels, cliffs, bridges, etc...)

- glacial limits

- U.S. congressional districts

- over 6, 000 mineral resources

- active mines

- old faults

- public land ownership

- hydrologic units

- EPA ecological regions

- USGS quadrangles

- township and range

- urban areas

- counties

- hydrology

- roads and major streets

- railroad tracks

- cities and towns

- potassium/argon dates

- state plane zones

- UTM zones

- main aquifers

In addition, this release introduces a number of additional layers, which can be downloaded for free from the application:

- state assembly districts

- state senate districts

- dams

- deer management units (useful for hunters)

- turkey management zones

- bear management zones

- 12, 000 geodetic points

- elementary school districts

- secondary school districts

- unified school districts

- cities and villages

- towns

- Indian areas

- landmark areas

- landmark points

with more layers to come.

Each layer contains additional information about each feature. For instance, the geology layer has a description of the unit's name, age range, rock type, and description. Each mine has a name, a commodity, a facility type, and a company name. See our web site for more information about each layer.

There have been major improvements since the release of the sister programs covering AZ, CA, CO, FL, ID, MN, MT, NM, NV, NY/NJ/CT, TX, UT, WA/OR, and WY. Several significant bugs have been fixed.

5/5 stars

Now there's an interesting one

:
This is a very interesting concept -- combining all kinds of geographical data into one place. You can see what dams are in your congressional district, or how close railroads are to schools, or what geology underlies your house. This can be very powerful. I hope they come up with more layers, especially for wildlife (birds are my passion).

4/5 stars

Pretty good iPhone gis app

:
Except for the difficulty of adding layers this is a pretty sweet app.

4/5 stars

Like geography, you'll like it

:
Fills a void in what I want to know. Not real user friendly (ie lacks ablity to manage all the colors, so some overlays are hard to see). Sure that will bein next upgrade. Knowledge is what make us human, better than a game.
