Description

The GoFind! AR application is a prototype enabling users to visualise historic mutlimedia collections at their real world location using Augmented Reality and Multimedia Retrieval technologies.

The application targets smartphones and leverages Google's AR Core framework to support Augmented Reality and is currently implemented as open-source in Unity3d.

Building a mobile application on Unity3d has the advantage, that it is platform independent which comes at the cost of certain limitations. 

Therefore, a native Android application with the same capabilities as GoFind! AR might be able to overcome some limitations, especially with regards to cartography.
