Augmented Reality (AR) is the overlay of virtual computer graphics images on real world objects, and has many potential applications in industrial operations and academic research. ARToolKit is a C and C++ language software library that allows programmers develop Augmented Reality applications easily. Since the registration method of ARToolKit is based on computer vision, ARToolKit is not suitable for outdoor environment. ARToolKit needs to be improved for outdoor augmented reality. Source code of ARToolkit is improved in this paper. The registration method of vision is kept down, and 3D Electronic compass+RTKGPS is added, so that the registration method of 3D can be carried out not only indoor environment, but also outdoor environment. The paper discusses the framework of outdoor 3D underground pipeline augmented reality system based on ARToolKit.
