Metal Detecting Software

Metal detecting software can be a real aid for those of you who like to catalog your finds.

Personally, I have always used a spreadsheet from Microsoft Windows to catalog my “stuff.”

You may be asking why anyone who metal detects would bother to list what they found and where they found it.

Here are my reasons why I like to keep a database of what I have located.

Throughout the years, I forget what metal detecting areas produced what finds. If I have a desire to go back to a spot that I detected years ago, but I forgot what I found there, I can use my spreadsheet to show if the trip back would be worth my effort.

Sometimes when I am showing my “stuff” to others, people will ask me where an item was found. If I forgot, I can pull up my spreadsheet on my computer and tell them where.

What areas produced the most finds?

By using my spreadsheet, I can determine what areas produced the most finds over the years, and then I could concentrate on those types of areas.

The New Technology

However, things have changed. New technology has lifted the spreadsheet user detectorist, like myself, to a new level of sophistication. Now we are able to track our finds, and catalog them right on our cell phones.  Apps are the new wave of the future for anyone in the hobby.

Metal detecting software, although still in it's infancy, is opening up a new world for the hobbyist. You can now catalog your finds, take photos of them, and map where they were found, all from a single app. I wish this technology was around many years ago when I first began swinging my coil. It would have made my trips into the toolies much more easier because of the functions that come with these new apps.

The GPS system alone would have saved me countless hours of time in the field, and allowed me to be free of carrying another devise, like a handheld GPS.

There are even metal detecting games issued by app makers. Below I have listed a few of the more popular apps used in the hobby.
