When people explore new environments they often use landmarks as reference points to help navigate and orientate themselves. [...] Key Method Visibility calculations for the FoIs were pre-calculated based on a digital surface model derived from LIDAR (Light Detection and Ranging) data. The results were stored in a textbased relational database management system (RDBMS) for rapid retrieval. All interaction between the user and the system was via a speech-based interface, allowing the user to record and request…Expand
Augmented reality from 3d architectural models
TLDR
This work presents a novel technique to automate identification of sub-building level spaces and navigation in 3D using digital replicas of real-life architectural buildings in an augmented reality environment and addresses challenges in automating the entire process such that manual effort is reduced to minimal.

A dialogue based mobile virtual assistant for tourists: The SpaceBook Project
TLDR
An EU funded project, SpaceBook, that explored the utility of a hands-free, eyes-free virtual tour guide, that could answer questions through a spoken dialogue user interface and notify the user of interesting features in view while guiding the tourist to various destinations was explored. Expand
Layered information overlay on telexistence using augmented reality techniques
TLDR
TELESAR V is introduced which maps a user spinal1, neck, head and arm movements into a dexterous slave robot and allowing the operator to feel the robot body as his own body through visual, auditory, kinesthetic and fingertip tactile sensation. Expand
Research on Configuration Arrangement of Spatial Interface in Mobile Phone Augmented Reality Environment
TLDR
Study of the optimal arrangement of spatial interface and the influence of various layout parameters on browsing efficiency showed that the main factors affected by layout parameter on the browsing experience are screen size, movement rate and mapping deformation. Expand
MobiLAudio – a multimodal content delivery platform for geo-services
TLDR
The results show that the proposed solution significantly progresses the state-of-the-art in terms of mobile tour production and shows that an AUI is an effective modality for the delivery of audio content and natural directions when used in combination with a graphical user interface. Expand
Mobile capture of remote points of interest using line of sight modelling
TLDR
The development and evaluation of a smartphone application called Zapp that enables geo-tagging of any distant point on the visible landscape, which indicates the feasibility of the approach, but also how the appropriate use of such techniques will be constrained by current levels of precision in mobile sensor technology. Expand
Navigation in AR based on digital replicas
TLDR
This paper presents a mostly automated pipeline to process 3D geometry created from architectural blueprints, and discusses a coherent procedural approach to build the topological information required for navigation and a semiautomatic generation of hierarchical tags for identification of spaces. Expand
A qualitative model for describing the arrangement of visible cityscape objects from an egocentric viewpoint
TLDR
This research presents a user centred qualitative model which combines and extends previously published projective and topological models and is shown to be able to reason about objects typically in the field of view, and to be suitable for use in spatial queries. Expand
The Open University ’ s repository of research publications and other research outputs Remote mobile capture of points of interest using line of sight modelling
Recording points of interest using GPS whilst working in the field is an established technique in geographical fieldwork, where the user’s current position is used as the spatial reference to beExpand
The Influence of Digital Surface Model Choice on Visibility-based Mobile Geospatial Applications
TLDR
This article outlines the methodology and results for the experiments, which were designed to understand the accuracy and effects of model choices for mobile visibility querying, and shows that choice of surface model has important implications for mobile applications that utilize visibility in geospatial query operations.

Referring to Landmark or Street Information in Route Directions: What Difference Does It Make?
TLDR
The first experiment showed that in a wayfinding task, route directions referring to streets were less effective than those referring to landmarks for guidance purposes, and the second showed that when people generate route directions, they tend to produce less street than landmark information.

When and Why Are Visual Landmarks Used in Giving Directions?
TLDR
It is concluded that reference to landmarks is intended to help movers to construct a mental representation of an unfamiliar environment in advance and to prepare them cognitively to get through difficult or uncertain parts of that environment. Expand
