Traditionally, geologists use pencil and paper when logging soil descriptions, drilling tests, and well diagrams in the field. We wanted to see if we could speed up this process using a field computer. We tested a fully ruggedized Yuma2 tablet computer (retail value of $3500) and a consumer grade Dell Venue 8 (retail value $250). Both computers run a full version of Windows 7 or 8. So, we were able to run the Field Version of QuickLog borehole log software that is designed to run on tablet computers. Other tablet computers running Windows 7 or 8 would also suffice.
