Group Work

I worked in a group of three, our idea was a digital campus map app that runs on Android operating system. The app that we created lists all the university buildings and facilities in an ordered list from closest to furthest. We have successfully implemented an Augmented Reality view of your surrounds my holding your device camera up to a building and the building is recongised showing you the name and facilities available. In addition to these views we have also included a map with custom markers showing the building and type also the users current location. If the user presses on the markers the building name is output along with a description. If the user taps on directions, they are navigated from their current location to their desired destination.
