real-scale AR

Real-scale AR is a type of augmented reality (AR) in which scene content is overlaid onto its real-world physical position. Context aids, such as a basemap, are hidden, and the camera feed provides the context. ArcGIS Maps SDK for Swift and ArcGIS Maps SDK for Qt support real-scale AR as one of the three AR patterns a developer can achieve in their apps. This is also known as world-scale AR, full-scale AR, real-world AR, and planet-scale AR.
