Jake for stratigraphy

Easily measure stratigraphic sections

Requires an iPhone running iOS 13 or later

Jake makes measuring stratigraphic sections easy. Lay your phone on a bedding plane, and in one tap, record its dip and dip direction. Jake then shows you how to incline your phone to match the dip and direction with arrows and bold numbers. When the arrows disappear and the numbers are bold, your phone is now oriented parallel to bedding. Jake can be used with any Jacob Staff, or with our 3-printed Jacob staff (coming soon!)
