Wikitude & Google Maps

Creating custom geotagged worlds for the Wikitude Augmented Reality browser is great – however you are limited to viewing content that is within a few kilometers of your current position – this makes sense as you usually only want information within the context you are currently located on mobile – however you can view your Wikitude world data in Google Maps anywhere using the custom URL linking to your KML file on your Wikitude.me ashboard. Here’s a couple of examples:

  1. An interactive Google Map of some of my selected mlearning conference presentations: http://maps.google.com/maps/mapplets?moduleurl=http://wikitude.me/w4/wme/mapplet.jsp?kml=http://w4client.mobilizy.mobi/w4/search?action=mapplet%26providers=2f4f4513-49d0-4b4a-80df-4d5c26b8354f
  2. An interactive map of great cafes in Dunedin! http://maps.google.com/maps/mapplets?moduleurl=http://wikitude.me/w4/wme/mapplet.jsp?kml=http://w4client.mobilizy.mobi/w4/search?action=mapplet%26providers=255d3dcb-5ff9-4b42-944c-a97ce0ebc81e
  3. Of course using a URL shortener makes this rather long URL somewhat more manageable, e.g: http://bit.ly/IUDLC8
  4. And this URL can also be turned into a QRCode for mobile access. e.g.
    http://bit.ly/IUDLC8.qrcode
