CityViewAR: remembering Christchurch before 4 September 2010

"CityViewAR is a mobile Augmented Reality application that allows people to see how the city was before the earthquakes and building demolitions. Using an Android mobile phone people can walk around the city and see life–sized virtual models of what the buildings looked like on site before they were demolished, and see pictures and written information. Hundreds of 3D models of key city buildings have been made available from architect Jason Mill of ZNO, while the Christchurch City Council and Historic Places Trust have provided photographs and building histories.

CityViewAR is based on the HIT Lab NZ Android AR platform which uses the GPS and compass sensors of mobile phones to enable virtual information to be overlaid on live video of the real world. Android AR makes it easy for Android developers to build their own outdoor AR applications. The software was previously used for showing individual buildings, but this is the first time that it has been used to show dozens of buildings at once, and the first time in world that mobile phone AR has been used for earthquake reconstruction."

Airwave1: complete GPS L1 receiver that is designed to support geotagging in digital cameras

"Airwave1 is a complete GPS L1 receiver and it is the first product to benefit from Air's Always–On™ GPS technology.

Airwave1 is designed to support geotagging in digital cameras. To support this application, location information needs to be provided instantly when the user takes a photograph. With Airwave1 inside, the camera is continuously aware of its location and so it can immediately tag a photograph with its location – as soon as it is taken.

Airwave1 is a complete system for continuous location in cameras, comprising RF, analogue and digital signal processing hardware, a microprocessor and all embedded software necessary to provide a complete 'antenna to coordinates' solution in a single–chip."

Wi-Fi Hot Zones Create Urban Sound Gardens

Mark Shepard
The Tactical Sound Garden [TSG] Toolkit is an open source software platform for cultivating public "sound gardens" within contemporary cities. ... The Toolkit enables anyone living within dense 802.11 wireless (WiFi) "hot zones" to install a "sound garden" for public use. Using a WiFi enabled mobile device (PDA, laptop, mobile phone), participants "plant" sounds within a positional audio environment. These plantings are mapped onto the coordinates of a physical location by a 3D audio engine common to gaming environments – overlaying a publicly constructed soundscape onto a specific urban space. Wearing headphones connected to a WiFi enabled device, participants drift though virtual sound gardens as they move throughout the city.
