Full range digital field notebook


Field geologist is an android application designed to replace the traditional geological field notebook. It is a digital field notebook used in recording field data on igneous, metamorphic and sedimentary rocks in outcrop or core sections as well as alluvial and stream sediments during field geologic mapping. Field Geologist works offline and runs on consumer-grade android (all android versions) phones and tablets. The recorded information is grouped automatically as individual projects that can be saved either internally to device or any external drive and digital data base. The data can ultimately be exported in Excel (CSV) format, saved to device share or transferred to the PC or other devices in a single click using any transfer media such as Bluetooth, Xender, and Whatsapp etc.
