ViPolis is a platform that helps people explore their real world with Augmented Reality (AR), and helps innovators and shops attract potential customers to their place to see their works as AR. It accomplishes that by providing a mobile app accompanied with a web app that uses geolocation to augment the real world with augmented objects, including 3D objects, videos and photos, which appear on the phone screen when the tags are detected. These 3D objects are mapped to their place depending on geographical location as well as a photo tag. The 3D objects are fetched from an online repository created by a community of content creators, which includes artists, architects, archaeologists, advertisers and others. This app helps its users to explore the real world with new perspectives, and ignites their exploratory curiosity. Exploring users include tourists, hikers, and all explorers in general.
