madr - a generic, mobile AR browser
This project is about implementing a (research) prototype of a generic, mobile AR browser that utilises Linked Open Data (LOD) data sources. For the background, you might want to read our position paper on this topic and what the potential is. Ah, and in case you wonder, the name itself, madr, comes from
Mobile AugmenteD Reality ...
Under the hood ...
- Then, using Ajax, LinkedGeoData, and with it the OSM is queried for nearby 'Points of Interest' (PoI).
- From the available PoI the user can select to visit one.
- Next steps:
- We will use aLODin for interaction with the PoI; see also the Entity-Action vocabulary.
- We plan to integrate with social media streams (Twitter, Google+, etc.) based on the user's location.
And this is how madr currently looks on my Samsung Galaxy SII:
