Augmented Reality Markup Language (ARML)

Indpakning af den udvidede virkelighed ...

Making it easy to move augmented reality ... ?


This is a brief overview of ARML.

The Augmented Reality Markup Language (ARML) is a specification to help establish and shape a long-term, sustainable framework for displaying geographic annotation and location-specific data within Augmented Reality browsers.

The purpose for establishing a open ARML specification is to assure all data that is created for augmentation in the physical world could be universally accessed and viewed on any augmented reality browser. ARML allows individuals and organizations to easily create and style their own AR content (e.g. points of interest) without advanced knowledge of AR, APIs or tools. The ARML specification is analogous to HTML for the Web, which is used for creating web-pages and web-sites.

Features of the proposed ARML specification 1.0 include:
• Founded upon KML with extension name-space for AR specific data;
• Placement of a "View in AR" icon which clearly identifies a mobile website that supports location aware (real time) data in an ARML browser;
• Compliance with basic XML document structure - no proprietary programming API required to create an AR layer.
• ARML adherent data can be viewed on ARML browsers (e.g. Wikitude) and KML browsers (e.g. Google Earth);
• Custom styling of AR data (points of interest) via standard KML styling elements;
• Initial support for UTF-8 encoding;
