Augmented Reality (AR) is a modern technology which can be used on mobile phones to place
virtual objects in the real world. MU SkyView uses AR to allow the user of an ARCore
supported device to place a 3D map of Marshall University’s Huntington Campus onto the floor
or a table in the real world. They can then see and interact with it through their phone screen.
While maps are helpful, new students at Marshall University often need help finding their way
around campus. MU SkyView will help them better understand campus by seeing the whole
thing in 3D. They can also tap on buildings to see basic information about them. Some
students attend college for years and still don’t know about everything on this campus, but this
app gives them an easy way to see everything.
