I am at the moment in holiday Inn the Norwegian mountains, and I am often curious of what the name is in the peaks in horizon. I have tried some apps, but they are based on a database, and many of the peaks are to small.


My idea is to make a AR view that shows the peaks name over the tops. (Maybe with a thin peak profile over the picture for calibration of compass and angle)


Another idea is to make a AR view with camera picture on top, and map in bottom. On top it can be a marker that represent the center in map on bottom. Then we can seek for peaks in the horisont (or another things mir near, as lakes, or maybe builidings), and look at the map to find names and more info.


I think this would be an great augment for the app.

Would be interesting, not only for peaks but also for villages, castels, in fact for many landmarks.

Well, i have tried this, but i think it just views points you have stored. Not peaks. It would also-ran be nice to view the map in in part of the screen.


I tried the the plugin again now, but it don't seems to work?

The plugin works OK, but indeed it show only existing POIs..

If you want peaks, I think the best app it is called PeakFinder

i have tried that, but as i said it only shows peaks in a database. If the peak (or country) is too small or doesn't help. Therefore i want to see the map, and read the info ftom that.
