PocketTransit is a geological compass app for smartphones and tablets, and records the orientations of planes (strike and dip) and lines (trend and plunge), along with traverse angles and field site locations. Built for professional use by geologists, geophysicists, surveyors, and field/mining engineers, PocketTransit allows visualisation of captured data in tabular, map, and stereonet forms, and allows easy export of data to spreadsheet-compatible files. PocketTransit captures strike, dip, trend, plunge and location data simultaneously in one operation.
PocketTransit has a five-tab UI featuring compass, theodolite, project, stereonet, and map pages.
Compass page: displays compass azimuth, along with strike, dip, trend, plunge, and location (in latitude/longitude or UTM), and includes a clinometer display.
Theodolite page: displays horizontal and vertical angles along with location data.
Projects page: displays captured data organised in user-defined projects. Captured data can be reviewed, edited, and exported.
Stereonet page: displays planes, poles, and lineations on a Wulff stereonet. The stereonet image can be exported to file.
Map page: displays capture locations on a flickable and zoomable map. Standard strike / lineation symbology is used for plane and lineation data.
A more advanced version of PocketTransit - PocketTransitPro - is also available on Google Play and includes extra features such as custom plane and lineation types, photo records, email export, and rose-plot analysis.
