GSoC 2019 Adding Augmented Reality (AR) support to the MapMint4ME Android Application
This project aims to include the Augmented Reality (AR) support to MapMint4ME Android Application. This will allow the user to capture images with different objects marked on the image frame in real time. This will lead to storing more information about the location.MapMint4ME is an android application for MapMint web-service. MapMint is an internet-based Geographic Information System(GIS), designed to facilitate the deployment of Spatial Data Infrastructure(SDI). In an SDI, geographic data, metadata, tools, and the users are connected in an interactive manner in a framework so as to use the spatial information in an efficient and flexible way.
The MapMint is built on top of the ZOO-Project. The ZOO-Project is an SDI manager which gives the users the capability of building their own map and web-applications.
My proposal for GSoC 2019 can be found at: Proposal.
Advantages from this project
While capturing images most of the time people want to add some extra visual information with the image captured. Presently if we want to add extra features we have to take image edit image by placing the object and save the image. After addition of Augmented Reality (AR) support to the Android application, people can see the changes in realtime and capture image by placing an object exactly where they want. This improves the process of information gathering.
