  2. 2. Augmented Reality<br />“Augmented reality (AR) is a term for a live direct or indirect view of a physical real-world environment whose elements are merged with (or augmented by) virtual computer-generated imagery - creating a mixed reality”<br />http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Augmented_reality<br />Milgram&apos;s Reality-Virtuality Continuum<br />What is Augmented Reality<br />
  3. 3. Wikitude<br />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.<br />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<br />
  4. 4. Wikitude<br />The following video shows how to add POI (Points of Interest) and forms the basic function of creating an Augmented fieldtrip or tour.<br />Adding a POI and location descriptor.<br />You can also add a URL, links to images, youtube videos etc.<br />
  5. 5. Wikitude and Augment Fieldtrips<br />The camera, GPS and compass is used to calculate where you are in which direction the camera is facing.<br />This allows Wikitude/Wikipedia articles that are close to be displayed.<br />These articles or blocks of Wikipedia information  can be created prior to the field visit by the lecturer; or students could create their own using Wikipedia blocks.<br />These can be viewed either in Camera, Map or satellite mode and links to websites could provide additional information.<br />
