Abstract [en]

This thesis presents the development of an android application which has the capability of using the concepts of augmented reality to submerge the virtual information of user’s surroundings by detecting and tracking user’s location in real time.Eclipse is an open source software, used in professional development of software solutions and programming applications. It provides extensive availability of free libraries. It has been employed for the development of software used in this thesis.As the android GPS is notified, the application is fully location aware which keeps the track of user’s location. When the user points the camera in a specific direction, the application tracks the camera orientation and displays the records of a specific place. Then the application keeps on updating the information as the direction changes. The additional information is displayed with the help of "Google" databases. The information when gathered is then displayed to the live feed of camera which helps the users to interact in a more reliable way. Option for viewing the places in map view with the help of Google Maps is also available.
