Interactive geospatial models for augmented reality

  • Gerhard Schall
Part of the Mobile Computing book series (MOCOM)


High quality AR applications depend crucially on 3D models for visualization and interaction. The interaction between real objects and virtual content is fundamental to AR. The generation and use of 3D models for AR has come a long way from static models and offline creation to online capture during operation. Parallel to this development, 3D models already have a long history of more than 20 years in computer vision and image processing. A central question is how models can be created in such a way that they can fulfill the dual purpose of visualization and tracking. This issue will be covered for the discussed modeling approaches.
