In this paper we describe ClayVision, a new quasi-immersive urban navigation system that rethinks the design conventions of existing Augmented Reality (AR) applications, by aggressively incorporating knowledge from non-Computer Science fields - namely Information Design and Urban Planning. Instead of the prevailing approach of pasting "information bubbles" onto the existing urban scenery, ClayVision communicates through real-time 3D transformations of city elements. In other words, the system… 
Dynamic Insertion of Virtual Objects in Photographs
TLDR
A framework for the introduction of virtual objects in user-captured photos is discussed and a proof-of-concept implementation is presented to demonstrate the concept and show a high reliability in the scene detection and that users are able and motivated to use this type of systems.
Interactive acquisition of spatial information from images for multimedia applications
TLDR
Computer vision, computer graphics and human-computer interaction techniques required to acquire images and information about the scenario involving the user are discussed and several proof-of-concept projects are presented and studied.
Augmenting Physical Maps: an AR Platform for Geographical Information Visualization
TLDR
An augmented reality (AR) system, ARTourMap, is proposed, which provides an abstraction layer to develop applications based on the concept of separated logic map tiles taking advantage of a multi-target system where several regions of the map trigger different superimposed graphics.
Grid-based outdoor object recognition for augmented reality
TLDR
This work will focus on markerless hybrid Outdoor Augmented Reality systems that minimizes the required scene understanding allowing for augmentation of an environment with minimal input.
Scaled reality: interfaces for augmenting information on small-scale tangible objects
In this paper, we introduce the concept of Scaled Reality with a set of interfaces to distort, deform and resize our comprehensible spatial world to help us augment and visualize information on
Classifying handheld Augmented Reality: Three categories linked by spatial mappings
TLDR
This work studies the relaxing of the spatial coupling between the digital information and the physical surrounding in order to enhance interaction by breaking the constraints of physical world interaction.
A design space of guidance techniques for large and dense physical environments
TLDR
A design space is proposed that describes and compares existing guidance techniques according to four dimensions: output modality, physicality, granularity and spatial information that enables their comparison and the generation of new techniques by highlighting unexplored areas.
Image Based Proximate Shadow Retargeting
TLDR
Shadow Retargeting is introduced, which maps real shadow appearance to virtual shadows given a corresponding deformation of scene geometry, such that appearance is seamlessly maintained in real-time Augmented Reality (AR) on a mobile device.
Efficient Use of Textured 3D Model for Pre-observation-based Diminished Reality
TLDR
A pre-observation-based DR (POB-DR) framework that uses a textured 3D model of a scene for efficiently deleting undesirable objects and enables geometric and photometric registration that allow the user to move in six degrees-of-freedom (6DoF) under dynamic lighting during the deletion process.
Handheld augmented reality interaction : spatial relations
We explored interaction within the context of handheld Augmented Reality (AR), where a handheld device is used as a physical magic lens to 'augment' the physical surrounding. We focused, in

We describe a prototype system that combines together the overlaid 3D graphics of augmented reality with the untethered freedom of mobile computing. The goal is to explore how these two technologies
Windows on the world: 2D windows for 3D augmented reality
TLDR
A small display overlays a selected portion of the X bitmap on the hypermedia system that allows links to be made between user’s view of the world, creating an X-based augmented windows and windows to be attached to objects.
View management for virtual and augmented reality
TLDR
Algorithms that use upright rectangular extents to represent on the view plane a dynamic and efficient approximation of the occupied space containing the projections of visible portions of 3D objects, as well as the unoccupied space in which objects can be placed to avoid occlusion are introduced.

TLDR
The characteristics of augmented reality systems are described, including a detailed discussion of the tradeoffs between optical and video blending approaches, and current efforts to overcome these problems are summarized.
Augmented reality in a wide area sentient environment
TLDR
This work has approached the challenge of implementing a wide-area, in-building AR system in two different ways, which combines sparse position measurements from the Bat system with more frequent rotational information from an inertial tracker to render annotations and virtual objects that relate to or coexist with the real world.

Image of the city
What does the city's form actually mean to the people who live there? What can the city planner do to make the city's image more vivid and memorable to the city dweller? To answer these questions,
