ExplorAR: Augmented Reality Wayfinding: The Future of Tourism.
by Augmented Marketing
Owen Sound, Ontario , canada
A good wayfinding experience using AR with many important features such as self localization, POI search, destination recognition upon arrival...etc.
People struggle with traditional top-down maps and there is a need for a better solution.
AR Wayfinding gives Line of Sight (LOS) to where you want to go, making it much more intuitive as well as allowing the user to engage with extra information on the fly about the destination.
Signs on walls are frequently confusing, and not presented in appropriate positions or a logical sequence, So this solution saves users a lot of time, spatial confusion, and frustration. AR Wayfinding is a great solution for:
1. Walking Tours
2. Historical Facts
3. Special Geo-Based Promotions
4. Economic Growth by promoting surrounding business

To show how media and visualizarion affect citizen engagement with urban public data.
Using augmented reality, the camera displays on the users' screen 3D graphics in form of 3D columns or charts layed on top of the map following the correct localization (through Vuforia and Unity).
So citizens engage and learn more about open government data which could aid public participation in democratic affairs.
