In this dissertation project the history and current applications of Augmented Reality are discussed in a literature review. Further from this, research is conducted into the feasibility of a prototype Augmented Reality navigation application around the UWIC campus with emphasis on whether the application is needed and therefore development is justified. Additional research is conducted to assess if there is an association between the answers and tendencies discovered in the research, and the course that the participants are studying. These results are analysed using the Chi Square (X2) method to determine if there is indeed an association. From this research it was also discovered that an accompanying website should in fact be developed in parallel to the application. Following this, a prototype iPhone application and accompanying website are developed. The application’s purpose being to demonstrate the potential ability of the Augmented Reality technology for navigational purposes. This application is developed in conjunction with a focus group, with their feedback ultimately determining how the application behaves, and looks like. As mentioned a website is also developed parallel to the iPhone application, The application and website are then documented and tested, and the dissertation paper is concluded, discussing the findings from research and the outcomes from development.
