Is an augmented reality application that adds real time computer generated data to a real image. This application combines the use of GPS, the digital compass, camara and permanent Internet connection. In this way, a camera captures images from the surroundings and displays them on the screen. The GPS determines the exact compass position of the place you are looking at. Based on this information, the application takes data from the Internet and superimposes it on the mobile screen. At the same time, Layar contains layers of information offering different content. Turgalicia's augmented reality layer shows information on tourist resorces throughout Galicia.

Which mobile phones can I use the application with?
To use this application, you need to have a mobile phone with an Android operating system or an Iphone with GPS. Since the application makes intensive use of data, we also recommend having a permanent Internet connection.

Once you have selected the Turgalicia layer, just position your mobile phone as if you were taking a photograph and a series of icons will appear onscreen, representing points of interest. At the same time, a short description of these is displayed at the bottom of the screen.
