Augmented Reality (AR) is the next step in presenting location data. See how Titanium Mobile enables you to create cross platform AR Apps using common APIs such as Groupon, Yelp, Twitter, and others.

Learn how to use GeoNames, Google and other third party services to extend Titanium's Geolocation functionality. Example source will be provided on how you can chain different location services to handle different accuracy and availability requirements.

Compare different AR presentation patterns and how they are implemented cross platform. Learn how to used the camera overlay and other UI elements to effectively present geolocation data.

The Titanium Platform provides a rich framework to build AR Applications upon. Using the TiAR sample application we will discuss a series of patterns and approaches on how to build AR into your Apps. The TiAR sample application will be available upon github before the conference begins.

  • 2. Agenda•  Why Augmented Reality?•  Provider Approach to Location Services•  AR App User Interface Composition•  How Web Services + Camera = Awesome•  Where to get the code
  • 3. Who the heck are you?•  Titanium Titan•  Focused on Geolocation problems•  Specialize in Enterprise Twitter: @benCoding Email: to customer delivery Slides on github: placeholder•  Using Ti since 0.4
  • 4. Why Augmented Reality?Augmented Reality provides acontext to your content. The user now interacts to the content instead of simply consuming it.
  • 5. Location Provider Approach  Location Provider Libraries offer: 1.  High availability – Not dependent on a single provider 2.  Flexibility – Use different providers for different situations 3.  Global Focus – Use providers that specialize where your user is
  • 6. Introducing  myTiLoca:on  •  CommonJS module•  Plug-in model•  Handles fallback scenarios•  Standard Input / Output Format•  Reverse Geo & Forward Look-up•  Distance, Bearing, & other helper functions
  • 7. Setup  Easy  as  1-­‐2-­‐3  Step #1 – Create the provider Factory var myGeo = require(‘myTiLocation);Step #2 – Give it a list of providers var myProviders =[native,geonames]; Order specifies their fallback priorityStep #3 – Register your providers myGeo.registerProviders(myProviders);
  • 8. GeCng  Results  Reverse Geolocation myGeo.reverseGeo(lat,lon,callback);Forward Geolocation myGeo.forwardGeo(address,callback);myGeo.calculate –  myGeo.calculate.distance(lat1,lon1,lat2,lon2); –  myGeo.calculate.bearing(lat1,lon1,lat2,lon2); –  myGeo.calculate.midpoint(lat1,lon1,lat2,lon2);
