hey everybody, thanks for the forum and hopefully you guys can help me out. me and my dad own/operate a small water well drilling business. i've looked around a little online but dont really know what to look for. i would like to convert almost 30 years of water well notes (customer names, addresses, notes on the well structure, etc) onto some type of program or app that i could use from now on. its gonna be a pain to type all that stuff over, so i'm hoping theres something out there that will work really well so i'll get fired up enough to do it. something gps where i can type someones address or be standing on a property and it show me any jobs i have nearby and be able to click on the job and see how deep that well went, etc. which is very nice to have handy when drilling and quoting prices. btw i have a macbook and we both have iphone 5s. thanks, and any advice is very appreciated.
oh yea, is it possible create a makeshift underground map of my area using the well notes.. ??
Depending on how technical you want it to be, a "regular" database program might work. You could look at Bento or Filemaker Pro. Both have Mac versions and iPhone & iPad versions. I believe Bento might have some mapping functionality, but I don't know for sure.
