Geo Tag: To Trigger Content
I would like to see AR experience triggered when user approaches and enters certain geotagged location.
Thank you all for the votes and suggestions! The team is exploring this, so feel free to add more comments and suggestions on how you would like to use this in your workflow. Thanks!

Yes, I work with kids in various neighbourhoods across town, this would be a very productive feature.

I'd love for this to be an option. I work with local and regional parks and this would be an amazing way to create "Story Walks" for children and to teach about local plants and animals.

This is the reason I was interested in Aero. This can be a very useful feature to create artistic content or very useful use of AR. Imagine to create some virtual guide that the visitors of a museum can access from their mobile. Especially in a moment like this in which is better if you don't handle objects handled by other people.

Geo tagging would be a brilliant feature. This would need public / not public options so the consumer could choose what they saw. Maybe a QR code or a link would unlock a particular location-based experience

I totally agree with that kind of GPS function. I just don't know how it could be shared with a lot of people, for example, with old photos… Imagine, you walk in the street, and you look on your smartphone to see if you can watch the building just in front of you the way it was decades ago. It would be so cool. Of course, the more people share old photos, the coolest it is! But maybe a native app for that would be better?

I would also love to have that kind of GPS fonction for old photos so people can feel « back to the future » !
From App Store reviews:
I would love to be able to memorize in my files the GPS position and the angle of view by the compass, to share them later (to make 'AR of old photos) ... Could this be possible?

I am very interested in being able to attach an Aero creation to a GPS location or tag as well. Also a way to lock the scale, and location of objects when sharing. I am trying to create an AR immersive experience for my students. I want it to be something they can walk through and interact with, but right now I can't get the scale to be set to what I define in the desktop app of Aero when I try it on my phone.

Without being able to set the items in a specific gps coordinate space, like along a recreational trail or school playground, parking lot etc.. this program is really useless. Opening an experience indoors can be really overwhelming, unless you have access to an empty room. Users that I send the link to do not understand how to interact with the program. I have to hold their hands, help them download the app, and help them set an anchor point. I sent the review link to intelligent, tech savvy individuals, they all had issues understanding the process.

Plus one to this idea!

Thanks for the exciting suggestions! I'm a Product Manager on the Aero team.
Geo tagging, triggering and adapting content could all be really helpful to Aero creators and enable some highly compelling experiences.
We've done some thorough evaluations of these and hope to share more very soon!(Edited by admin)

To create better visual alignment when using AR outdoors, it could be worth using Sensei to approximate light and shadows based on a mix of the following inputs.
- GPS location
- Time of day (position of sun)
- Local Weather data (overcast, sunny etc.)
- Device Camera input (front and back) to create rough environment maps
- Google maps Satellite imagery to estimate if AR object is in the shadow of a building, mountain etc.

Would like to be able to scan an outdoor location and then attach and activate common file types like xls, doc, PDF etc. as assets. I’m thinking of this in the context of developing an AR based training tool for industrial site safety plans. Would like the user to be able to activate a spreadsheet from an anchored point and then use it and save the work. Also would like to be able to attach videos and sound files or activate url’s from an anchored object. Is any of this possible?

This is the geolocation based AR experiences I am building. This video is to support the post I made on Dec 8th about (geolocation based triggers or support)
Agni Kala commented
It would be great to have a geolocation base AR experience support. I would like to create an AR experience out in nature, and have the viewer experience it only at the specific spot
I agree with that!
...Are there any plan that GPS or related place information will be on Aero experience?
Kevin Brown commented
To be able to post signage with a gps tag so that customers can share and see the image. For example at career fairs or even walking down the street.
Chan Spencer commented
Could there be a function that allows animations to exist in specific locations only and triggered / controlled by the time of day for instance a sun setting at sun set or lighting that matches the time of day for exterior experiences
I’d like to create an AR asset that’s geographically fixed and that can link to digital files stored in the cloud.
For example, imagine walking into a geographically fixed space, (a retail store for example), invoking an Aero experience that provides file downloads into the viewers device.
Think: an AR based brochure rack/bookshelf that allows selection in of downloadable PDF files in VR space.

With InDesign, Acrobat, and Aero we could make some really interesting Point Of Sale assets, AND the documentation to go with them

Yesssss... combine both visual and geotagged scenes. Geotagged for big views (for example, typical city marks like restaurants or monuments viewed from street) Then, when we enter in a given radius around the geotagged location, a trigger activates the local 3D scene for close visualization. This way, we could work in a hierarchy of triggers that will load scenes on demand.
