Will be demonstrating LibreGeoSocial.
Where/how to obtain: This is free software. Source code of both, the LibreGeoSocial client side (mobile augmented
reality Android application) and the LibreGeoSocial server side (a Python server) is available on this page. The Android apk can be downloaded from this page.
An Android application will be published on the Android Market.
What is it: LibreGeoSocial is a new FLOSS (Free, Open Source) mobile social network with a Mobile Augmented Reality interface. The nodes of the social network are geolocated and positioned at different altitudes. LibreGeoSocial nodes can be shown through a traditional list based view or through a magic lens mobile augmented reality UI that not only allows the user to see tags associated with objects of the reality perceived through the camera, but also to add tags to objects from the mobile, labeling objects at different altitudes. The system works both outdoors and indoors, with location provided by BIDI codes.
For more information go to the project information page here.
How does it help: Developers can customize LibreGeoSocial to different scenarios: tourism, augmented reality games, AR shopping, audio-guides etc.
End users of LibreGeoSocial can refer to information and upload information associated to real objects around them from the mobile device. The information can be shown through different interfaces: dynamic lists, maps, or a magic lens interface. Thanks to an alarm system you donâ€™t need to use continuously any of these interfaces to be aware of nearby interesting information. An alarm is fired when you are near interesting places, objects or multimedia content that you previously specified to the alarm system. In this way you will not miss any interesting place.
