Description

Wikitude is a handy application for planning a trip or to find out about landmarks in your surroundings; 350,000 world-wide points of interest may be searched by GPS or by address. The truly compelling feature is the cam view, users may hold the phone’s camera against a spectacular mountain range and see the names and heights displayed as overlay mapped with the mountains in the camera. Users may look out of an airplane window to see what is down there. Users may walk through a city like Seville, Spain, holding the phone’s camera against a building and Wikitude tells what it is.

  • Using Maps API, Wikitude is able to search 350,000 world-wide points of interests based on your current GPS location or by address, display the results in list and map view and read detailed articles in a PDA friendly way.
  • Next to displaying results on a map, Wikitude is able to display points of interests as overlay in your phone’s camera view.
  • There is a special “Scan Mode” within the camera view. In this mode you see name and detail information of the point of interest that is closest to the center of the cam screen. This way you can scan the horizon to get more information about a particular point of interest (I.e. a mountain, a landmark or a special building).
