GeoLOG Application

Screen of Application CBDG GeoLOG CBDG GeoLOG Application was created especially for use on mobile devices - smartphones and tablets. This application is based on map services provided from the largest geological database – CBDG. Thanks to it, you can access very detailed data directly from the map, in any place, in the field, where only there is access to the Internet.

To make it easier to navigate through such a large amount of information, the 70. maps that the application contains have been divided into 14 thematic areas. Additionally, the application has a map search engine. In total, in the CBDG GeoLOG Application, there are 222 thematic layers that can be freely combined to create various map compositions on the screen. For a better visualization of geological data, the user can choose one of 13 base maps. The map composition created during the work can be saved and also shared in e.g. social networks.

At, there is a lot of knowledge in many fields of geology in one place - the effect of field work and detailed research of many generations of geologists.


GeoLOG Application in Google Play GeoLOG in App Store The CBDG GeoLOG Application is also available for free in the Google Play and App Store. The current version of the application in these stores does not work properly and requires fixes, which will be implemented soon.
