Canadian prospector for iOS

By David Collins Free

Developer's Description

Note: ONTARIO maps only, for this initial release !

Canadian prospector is a field app that displays the best available data from the government geological surveys in interactive maps created by Trilobite Solutions. It does not have any reliance on cell phone reception in the field, and uses GPS so your location is always marked on the map. Maps are downloaded to your phone when have an internet connection, and from that point on, you are independent of the internet.

The base geology maps are rich with contextual data - including shaded relief, roads, towns, tracks, rivers, lakes, geographic names, indigenous land, national parks & provincial parks.

More provinces are yet to be added, but it is 100% READY FOR FIELD WORK IN ONTARIO. Other major prospecting provinces will be added over 2020, but it is not the intention to cover all 10 Canadian provinces and 3 territories.

App development, system maintenance and user support is fully-funded by customer subscriptions - there is no in-app advertising or harvesting of your data.
