festivAR is an app for viewing Augmented Reality festival information on your phone or tablet. It was created to allow festival promoters to present Augmented Reality maps connected to festival data without expensive or delicate equipment.
festivAR employs an interactive 3D map as the core of the augmented reality experience in this location-based app.
Developed to support multi-venue events with scheduled events or activities, festivAR presents a 3D view of the festival environment with the various venues and activities highlighted and interactive.
After scanning the festival target, which can be a poster, logo, or other graphic device dispersed through the festival grounds and/or on printed materials (even t-shirts!), a you-are-here indicator locates you within the festival grounds, so that you can quickly locate what’s around you. The 3D nature of the AR map helps you understand your environment much more quickly than a traditional map, and you can click on the various venues around you to find out what’s happening there right now or later.
Various animated 3D elements can be included, such as pedestrian routes, indicated by a flow of pedestrians walking through the grounds, bus or tram routes featuring a tram or bus driving the route through the augmented reality festival, as well as other festival highlights, such as stages, vendors, searchlights, restrooms, lost and found, medical facilities, etc. All are presented in 3D for instant recognition and spatial clarity.
Clicking on these 3D map elements provides additional information such as hours, exact location, services available, speaker and/or performance schedules, etc.
Sponsorship banners with links to their websites are offered, as well as a real-time festival news page within the app, so that festival goers don’t have to leave the app to search the web to find out about any late-breaking schedule changes or other time-sensitive festival information.
