CLEVELAND, OH — The Marble Institute of America (MIA) has just released a new iPad® app that gives design and construction professionals quick easy access to detailed information about natural stones quarried in North America. The Stones of North America app is available for free download at the iTunes Store. The app has been produced by MIA with support from Mapei, a producer of adhesives and other products for the installation of stone and other floor and wall coverings.

The app features marble, granite and other stones from more than 70 quarries in North America. MIA’s goal in creating the app was to give architects, builders, designers, homeowners and others shopping for natural stone an easy way to view and select stone on the popular iPad.

The Stones of North America app displays stones in vivid color and offers an array of capabilities and content for stone selection and use. Users can explore natural stones by type, color, intended use, location and distance from a project. Featured stones are showcased through stunning photos of their use in commercial and/or residential applications. Technical specifications, physical properties and details on recommended use make it easy to specify the right stone for any project. Sophisticated mapping technology enables users to measure the distance from the stone’s quarry and processing centers to a jobsite for sustainable projects.

To download the Stones of North America app, go to iTunes or the App Store and search “Stones of North America.”
