Currently, it is possible to create two types of layers using Layar Development API, namely geo-location based layer and vision layer.
- What is geo-location based layer ?
A geo-location based layer shows AR content that is attached to a specific geo-location, for instance, information on real-state properties, museums, offices, etc. To create a geo-location based layer, please check out this howto page. There is also a tutorial on how to create a simple geo-location layer.
- What is vision layer ?
A vision layer shows AR content on top of prints, for instance magazines, posters, business cards, etc. Developers can augment an image that is uploaded to the publishing site. Please check out here to learn how to get started with vision layer creation.
