In this paper we present a method to visualize geo-referenced objects on modern smartphones using a multi-
functional application design. The application applies different localization and visualization methods including
the smartphone camera image. The presented application copes well with different scenarios. A generic application work
flow and augmented reality visualization techniques are described. The feasibility of the approach is
experimentally validated using an online desktop selection application in a network with a modern of-the-shelf
smartphone. Applications are widespread and include for instance crisis and disaster management or military
The wide availability of previously acquired, geo-referenced imagery enables automatic video based solutions for high precision object geo-localization and cooperative visualization. We present a system which geo-references objects seen in UAV video streams, distributes this information in a sensor network and visualizes them on modern smartphones using augmented reality techniques. The feasibility of the approach was experimentally validated using Mini-UAV ("MD-400") and high altitude UAV video footage in combination with modern off-the-shelve smartphones. Applications are widespread and include for instance crisis and disaster management or military applications.
