Augmented Reality (AR) offers a means to inject virtual information into real scenes. In the past few years, AR has been receiving greater attention thanks to considerable advancements in the hardware of consumer-level portable devices. In this paper, we illustrate how mobile AR can be exploited to intuitively visualize, and moreover generate new, geo-data. We explore these two concepts through i) the visualization and interaction modality of geo-data as AR layers and ii) the exploitation of mobile devices as opportunistic sensors for generating information relating to a user’s immediate surroundings.

Abstract

Augmented Reality (AR) offers a means to inject virtual information into real scenes. In the past few years, AR has been receiving greater attention thanks to considerable advancements in the hardware of consumer-level portable devices. In this paper, we illustrate how mobile AR can be exploited to intuitively visualize, and moreover generate new, geo-data. We explore these two concepts through i) the visualization and interaction modality of geo-data as AR layers and ii) the exploitation of mobile devices as opportunistic sensors for generating information relating to a user’s immediate surroundings.
