Augmented Reality (AR), which is an emerging information technology that combines physical and virtual realities, is used in wide spectrum of domains. Due to technological advances of mobile devices, the AR application users increase and services area becomes global scale in mobile environment. As a result, the volume of data that the AR applications should manage increases exponentially. However, the conventional AR applications, which rely on the sensors or image recognition of objects, are limited to the trackability and scalability of services in terms of timeliness and wireless communication. Motivated by these problems, we propose architecture of the middleware for Location-based AR Services (LARSs) in mobile environment. This paper focuses on two main aspects. First, a novel system framework for LARSs based on the spatial query is proposed. Second, for supporting mobility of users, middleware architecture for LARSs is designed in server-client framework.
