Paper Abstract

Locative Viewing is a method for visualizing geographically-referenced 3-D objects in the local coordinate system of a geographically-referenced observer. A computer-graphics rendering of nearby geo-objects is superimposed over the visual surroundings of the observer as seen by a camera. This rendering changes as the observer moves. Locative viewing can be accomplished with a mobile device that 1) is able to determine its geographic location, and orientation, 2) contains a camera and image display, and 3) can project and overlay objects within the field of view of the camera with the camera image. A preliminary implementation of a locative viewer using Apple's iPhone is described and results presented.
