The Marble Institute of America has released Stones of North America Version 3, an iPad app that gives design and construction professionals quick, easy access to detailed information about natural stones quarried in North America. Version 3 of the app includes 31 new natural stones, various programming updates to ensure proper functionality with iOS7, and a brand new companion website which makes this information available to everyone with internet access.
The app features natural stones from more than 100 quarries in North America. Users can search natural stones by type, color, intended use, location, and distance from a project. Stones are displayed in color and are showcased through photos of their use in commercial and/or residential applications. Technical specifications, physical properties, and details on recommended use make it easy to investigate natural stone for any project.
Sophisticated mapping technology enables users to measure the distance from the stone’s quarry and processing centers to a job site for sustainable projects. A care and maintenance tab includes a comprehensive guide for how to care for and maintain all varieties of natural stone.
The Stones of North America iPad app is available for free download on iTunes. To navigate the companion website, visit: www.stonesofnorthamerica.com.
