  1. Open the application in the mobile phone
  2. Select the ‘Enter’ button

  4. The user can select any POI to get the following information:
  • Image
  • Latitude/Longitude
  • Navigation
  • Name of institute
  • Address
  • Website
  • Telephone Number

Step by step guide to ‘Enable AR mode:

  1. Open the application in the mobile phone
  2. Select the ‘Enter’ button
  3. The app would have a button “Enter AR Mode” in the map screen
  4. Click on the button to open the camera mode of the app
  5. On touching the POI, the application would start navigating the user from the current location to the POI
