Rocklogger version history:
- New Android Wear companion app for remote logging:
- View live sensor readings from your phone on your watch, and vice-versa
- Set a quick comment from your watch using voice recognition
- Save records from your phone on your watch, and vice-versa (paid only)
- Live seteronet view on your watch (paid only)
- Added warnings for devices without a magnetic field sensor
- Print logs and stereonet plots to PDF or other printers using Android print framework (4.4+, paid only)
- Save record remotely using button on a wired headset (paid only)
- Added some default map tile sources, and fixed a problem reading tile files from external sd cards on 4.4
- Added current location button and scale bar to map
- Plot logs on alternate basemaps from various sources including MapBox, zip files and the web (paid only)
- Share logs via NFC from map, stereonet and edit screens (useful when offline)
- Fixed the rock type box that was missing in some cases
- Fixed compatibility issues with maps on Android 2.1 and below
- Improved stereonet plotter for tablets
- Added recent records view on logging screen for tablets
- Added option to display location in decimal lat/long
- Can now open KML files in the phone version of Google Earth
- Rocklogger now also available on BlackBerry!
- Changed the behaviour when logging with the screen down in axial mode. Dip direction is now always the down direction. This also affects the cardinal shown in dip & strike axial modes. Note that the symbol always correctly indicated the direction that was being recorded.
- Fixed a bug when logging with the screen down in dip & strike normal mode. Previously, when the screen was down the strike did not flip to match what was indicated by the red arrow.
- Additionally, the dip direction cardinal letter would indicate the direction 90° anti-clockwise from the strike (when viewed from above). This was 180° opposite to the direction the phone was actually dipping (as indicated by the symbol).
- Now, the strike flips correctly to match the red arrow, and the dip direction cardinal letter always indicates the direction 90° clockwise from the strike (when viewed from above).
- Fixed the same problem when logging with the screen down in dip & dip direction mode. Previously, when the screen was down the dip direction did not flip to match what was indicated by the vertical line in the red symbol (ie, down), and was instead 180° opposite. Now, the dip direction flips correctly and matches the symbol.
- Added the word “Overturned” to the description of overturned records.
- Added the option to display coordinates in UTM. Records are still saved in lat/lon, as that is the format given by the GPS.
- Further fixes for the dip symbol display on tablets
- Increased the length of time the save toast is displayed when logging
- Additional bug fix when logging in dip & strike mode in certain locales
- Additional number formatting bug fixes for certain locales
- Added ability to export KML files (for use in the desktop version of Google Earth). KML files will be auto-generated and attached when ‘Email log’ is used (paid only)
- Added a horizontal white line to the logging screen, to make it visually easier to log in the same plane as the phone’s screen (which is usually more accurate than logging planes at random angles to the phone’s screen)
- Fixed a bug where the logfile was corrupted in locales which use , instead of . for decimal points
- Stereonet plotting. Plot records from log files as poles or planes on a stereonet (paid only)
- Filter records by plane type
- Each plane type is plotted in a different colour, including user-defined planes
- Draw poles or planes on the stereonet by touching or using the sliders. Use this to find intersections of planes or trends of pole clusters
- Sensor averaging. Adjust how fast sensor values are updated on screen via the new option in settings
- Fixed an error when logging perfectly horizontally in strike mode
- Changed the orientation sensor calibration screen back to displaying pitch and roll in degrees
- Other changes to the calibration, which means any existing calibration data will now be erased (you should re-calibrate if you wish)
- Fixed compatibility problems with devices whose default screen orientation is landscape (such as tablets). Rocklogger should now work correctly (rather than 90° out) in portrait orientation on these devices.
- Take a measurement from any orientation. The phone calculates the steepest angle for the dip angle, and uses the direction of that angle to calculate the new dip direction/strike.
- Live dip/strike symbol when logging, which points down, showing the direction of the steepest angle, and has an arrow indicating the strike.
- Choose whether to log in the new mode (normal orientation), or the old mode (axial orientation, which measures pitch only), by selecting the appropriate plane type. Eg you would still require the old mode when logging plunges and lineations, so select that plane type to log in axial mode.
- Specify axial or normal orientation when defining new plane types (paid only)
- Changes to the calibration screen to reflect the new features
- Additional improvements when scrolling through photos in the edit view
- Performance improvement when scrolling through many photos in the edit view
- Camera mode. Easily take photos using the camera, and have the photos saved with your .csv files. Thumbnails are shown in the edit screen, and the files are automatically attached when you email a log.
- IMPORTANT: Due to the wide variety of Android devices, photo capture may not work correctly for everyone. Please report any problems using the button in settings.
- Also note that every photo taken will also always be saved to the DCIM directory (so just remember you may have to delete these duplicates from time to time).
- Finally, it may take a long time to display images you have just taken when you try to open them using the Gallery. This is because the media scanner hasn’t scanned them yet. Try another image viewer (eg ASTRO, QuickPic)
- Quadrant mode. Choose to view and record in quadrant mode (eg N45°W) instead of azimuth
- Plot records on a map, showing location, strike and dip angle, using standard map symbols
- View records in a list, where you can delete specific records, or copy them to clipboard
- Unique map symbols for S0, S1, S2, L1, L2 plane types, and for magnetic and GPS only records
- Other lineation types use the L1 symbol
- Other plane types use the S0 symbol
- Rationalised the magnetic logging mode to use magnitude only, as 3 magnetic vectors are unnecessary. This has also resulted in a slight re-arrangement of the .csv format
- Added a quick help dialog for each logging mode
- Paid version records both dip & dip direction and dip & strike when in either dip mode
v1.0 14-03-11 Initial release features:
- Log rock orientation in either dip & dip direction or dip & strike mode
- Log either true or magnetic north
- Log the ambient magnetic field
- Take field notes with location, rock type etc
- Email log files for use in Excel/Mapinfo/etc
- Rocklogger unlocker available from market to enable the full version
