One of the subjects studied on engineering geology courses is the description of rock masses and the application
of geotechnical classifications. Field information is collected and organised in order to make possible to
apply rock mass classification systems and analyse stereographic projection data. The present work proposes
the use of computer supported ubiquitous learning to collect and treat field data. It presents work in progress
towards the creation of a mobile application suitable for Engineering Geology courses. A first prototype for
the Apple iOS system is presented.
