The SCARLET project aims to use AR (Augmented Reality) to simultaneously allowstudents to experience the magic of original materials, whilst enhancing the learning experience by‘surrounding’ the object with digitised content; images, texts, online learning resources and informationon related objects held in the Library and elsewhere.Scarlet+ AR Links: Works through JUNAIO App, available form Apple or Android StorePresentation on SCARLET:
  • 5. Go to View > Header & Footer to edit May 8, 2013 | slide 5Landmap-AR Content: geospatial AR channel developed in conjunction with Landmap is now live. It allows the user tovisualise this data in a whole new way. Through a highly detailed feature rich map, users can switchbetween different map layers and manipulate 3D models to bring the location to life.Added functionality enables the user to:• Freeze the tracking to take a snapshot of the layer• Activate gestures to rotate, scale and move the layer• Make the layer transparent to see how it fits on the printed base layer• Displays information about different parts of the interfaceTo access the channel simply open Junaio and scan the map image or scan the QR code below. Followthe instructions to uncover the content by holding your device over the satellite image. For maximumfunctionality the content is best viewed on a tablet device although smartphones will still display themodels and key correctly. Trigger Image:
