Using the Pencil-Paper Method with a Tablet Computer to Increase Borehole / Well Logging Efficiency

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.
