iGloo: Intelligent Geotechnical Logging Of Observations
Built on an common database platform, iGloo allows rapid and consistent geotechnical and geological data collection in the field using Apple's iPad tablet system. Data and imagery can be captured quickly, with the raw log data able to be emailed directly from the device to the office for assessment or entry into common graphic log production software such as Strater, gINT or WinLog.
The simple, yet powerful, front end allows the user to quicker enter data, with real-time calculations presented to them to confirm data accuracy.
An example of the main data entry screen is provided (Image capture from iPad):
iGloo takes advantage of the iPad's onboard camera, allowing samples, core or features of interest to be photographed and stored inside the database as a JPG format file.

iGloo requires FileMaker Go 16, a FREE application from the Apple App Store. The software will operate most effectively on iOS 8 or higher devices.
To fully utilise iGloo, the user will be provided with a Run-Time version of iGloo, which is can be run on a PC or MAC directly from a USB Flash drive, without installation. This is used to access and export imagery stored within iGloo more efficiently. All other data can be extracted from iGloo using the EXPORT function on the iOS device. Images may also be exported in PDF format from an iOS device. The full, non-Run-Time versions of this software can be purchased from many good quality software stores and online at Amazon or Filemaker.
