View geology maps and airborne geophysical images produced by the Geological Survey of NSW (Australia). The maps and images are downloaded to your phone so that no mobile reception is required in the field. Your location is always indicated on the map, and the map can be re-centred to your current location at any time with just one touch. The simplified geology map displays 106 broad rock types and is interactive. When the screen is touched the name and age of the underlying rock type is displayed in a pop-up. When the pop-up is touched, additional information is displayed. A detailed geology map of the eastern part of NSW will soon be available. This will also be interactive and provide information on approximately 3,000 rock units.

A useful tool for NSW geologists, engineers, farmers, environmental consultants and students and anyone interested in geology, landforms and soils.

Note that when you first run the app, the simplified geology map of NSW is downloaded automatically, but you can pause or cancel this download at any time.

Resources are getting dated

I suppose rocks don’t change however that’s not the case with solar, wind and hydro. Data from 2014 is pretty useless in 2022.

Great app but latest update doesn’t allow you to zoom in very far when using mobile - not as you can when using the seamless version on computer - even when maps downloaded. Possibly a big to be fixed for next version

Great but some suggestions

Great app for use on fieldwork. Version update seems to have bug causing maps to disappear when zoomed in. Also would be good to have a scale bar and link location icon to phone compass so you can gauge a rough bearing to the outcrop. This would be similar to googles little shaded area around the icon.
