TamAR is an augmented reality app version of the 2012 report card produced for the Tamar River estuary in Tasmania, Australia. The report card describes the health of the estuary and provides a grading from A to F for five zones along the 70 km estuary. Tour the Tamar Estuary in 3D using augmented and virtual reality to explore the habitats, flora and fauna, and issues affecting the health of the estuary. You will find swimming seals, flying eagles, and big-bellied seahorses hiding in the kelp forests and sponge gardens.
The first two levels of the app are augmented reality (AR), and overlay 3D graphics onto the tracking map. The third level is virtual reality (VR), allowing users to descend beneath the surface of the water in each zone to experience what lives under the water and issues affecting the health of the estuary.
Recommended minimum hardware: iPhone 4S or above, iPad 2 or above.
