Abstract

Augmented Reality (AR) offers a combination of physical and virtual objects, drawing on the strengths of each. Therefore, it is different from virtual reality since it permits users to sight the real world enhanced with virtual objects. Thus, AR technology holds potential to support users with valuable information about the surrounding area. In this paper, we demonstrate the development of an AR app that provides the students with rich information about the buildings nearby. The application, which we name "iMAP-CampUS", is designed to assist students at Macquarie University in locating places of interest close to them by moving the camera of the device in all probable directions to overlay information of places around them. The iMAP-CampUS has been developed for both iOS and Android platforms and run on smartphones and tablets with different screen sizes.
