Using geolocation as the marker

January 8, 2013 - 10:31pm #1


Instead of image as the marker I want to use geolocation as the marker so that when I point in particualr direction then model appears at particualr lat long instead of over the image. Any idea how may I acheive this using Unity Qualcomm AR plugin?

Instead of using an image as the marker, I want to use a specific geolocation as the marker so that when I visit a specific geolocation, then the target image appears overlaid in my mobile devices camera (like Pokemon Go characters). Can this be done using the Vuforia solution? Thanks for any info.

I'm working on something similar. To be able to add geo-referenced objects based on the users location, you need to make calls to SensorManager.getRotationMatrix and SensorManager.remapCoordinateSystem in Android SDK, since Vuforia SDK doesn't support it yet.

You can even bind the calls to the devices microphone as well, as an additional way to interact with these geo-located objects.


Additionally, you can have the object(s) move in a particular pattern around the geo-coordinate that is being referenced.


I'm just getting started up again, so maybe we can help each other out!

I know this is an old thread, but I wondered if:

this script for getting the user's location https://northrush.wordpress.com/2014/01/13/access-gps-data-on-unity-3d/

and then some sort of script attached to an object to make it appear on the camera when the user is in that location? But I'm not sure how I'd do that.


...I'm imagining a kind of mixed image tracking and location tracking app, say at an archaeological site where the user might be looking at museum panels in the visitors' centre (tracking images) and then out walking around the site (tracking location).

Hi, Vuforia (Qualcomm AR)

Hi, Vuforia (Qualcomm AR) does not support this feature; to do that you need to use the device sensors such as GPS and orentation sensor; note that this may not be very accurate.
