iPhone App Makes Map Navigation Easier to Visualize
Crossfader has developed Version 1.4 of AR-MAPS, an iPhone app that supports augmented reality (AR) on maps. AR is one of visualization solutions. This map application represents the ground on the bottom half of the screen, showing a map there. On the top half, it shows a video, with AR tags attached to destinations on it. This makes navigation easier to visualize.
Compared with the first version, the new version has features to reduce battery consumption, such as powering the camera down when not in AR mode. Also, if the iPhone is fixed in place, such as in a car, the mode can be set not to change if the phone’s orientation is changed.
