ABSTRACT

The advancement of network and hardware systems in mobile computing has led the rapid development of smart phones and their applications in digital geospatial and computing cartographic areas. Recently, as an interaction aspect of spatial information on smartphone environments, augmented reality has been a main research topic in academic fields including computer cartography. In this paper, we describe the development of geospatial augmented reality methods that combines general augmented reality concepts and methodological approaches. This technique makes a link between geospatial augmented reality techniques and its educational application of geographic information. By using QR code techniques that is as a basic step for augmented reality application, this paper demonstrates the usage examples of the augmented reality for geographic field survey and outdoor work. Secondly, three dimensional images converted from ArcGIS techniques are presented as an example of marker based augmented reality that integrates with current GIS environments. This marker based three dimensional visualization has the potential advantage to improve efficiency of geographical field survey, along with traditional paper map oriented indoor survey methods. It also shows that these approaches stated in this paper enable to contribute the increase of the volunteered geographic information applications implementing the QR code techniques that has integrated with augmented reality. Finally, we also expect that with the outputs proposed in this paper, the several fundamental problems of map reading, such as degree of informativevisualization, factual representation, and interpretational difficulties occurred when maps are overlaid can be tackled effectively with the QR code and marker based map by which a new modern cartographic areas are explored.
