Augmented Reality fieldwork using Wikitude Me.

Wikitude Browse the World  and Wikitude Me

WIKITUDE  World Browser presents the user with data about their surroundings, nearby landmarks, and other points of interest by overlaying information on the real-time camera view of a smart-phone.

WIKITUDE.me, is a community of mobile augmented reality users and shapers, empowered with a powerful tool to embed unique points of interest (POI) and location-specific.
The following video shows how to add POI (Points of Interest) and forms the basic function of creating an Augmented fieldtrip or tour.

 Educational Use
The teacher could prepare an Augmented reality fieldtrip by adding a POI (Point of Interest)
 along the route which subsequently students could find additional  information at relevant points by
launching the Wikiude app or their smartphones .

The camera, GPS and compass is used to calculate where you are in which direction the camera is facing. This allows Wikitude articles that are close to be displayed, these articles or blocks of Wikipedia information  could be created prior to the field vist by the lecturer or students could create their own using Wikipedia blocks.
