Geolocation in augmented reality refers to the process of determining and utilising a user's precise geographic location on Earth's surface. This is typically achieved using a combination of GPS (Global Positioning System), cellular network data, and other sensors in AR devices.
Geolocation is fundamental for AR applications that rely on location-specific information and experiences. It enables the seamless integration of digital content with the real world by aligning virtual objects or information with specific physical locations. Geolocation enhances AR experiences like location-based games, tourist guides, and navigation tools, allowing users to interact with contextually relevant content in their immediate surroundings.
