Graca,S., Oliveira,J.F., Realinho,V.

In the last few years there has been a significant evolution in the mobile devices hardware capabilities, this evolution is very important as it allows for more complex applications and services to be developed for this type of devices. In this paper we describe the concepts and key issues that arise when developing an Augmented Reality system in a localization application for smartphones in general. WorldPlus presents solutions and implements these concepts using the Android smartphone as an example.
