Geo Augmented Reality on a Smartphone

Keywords: Augmented reality - Smartphone - Geolocation

Functional Description: This application is an AR viewer to name the mountains, cities and historical buildings over the camera feed of the smartphone. The user can turn on himself with his device to discover names and information about Points of Interest (POIs). POIs are directly extracted from the OSM database thanks to the Overpass Turbo API. POIs are displayed on the screen with their name, an icon and an extra information. City POIs exhibit the number of inhabitants, mountains are associated to their altitude and historical buildings display their date of construction.
