* Offline Augmented Reality in Svalbard *
(Svalbard, Bear Island and Jan Mayen)
See what's near you where you travel in Svalbard: Mountains, Lakes, Places, Buildings, etc. You don't even have to be nearby Svalbard: You can manually set your location to a place in Svalbard to pretend you are there. Decide if you want to see places nearby, or famous cities around the world.
Works everywhere: By the sea, in the mountains, in the city. Without the internet, without coverage.
Turn the phone sideways to view on the camera screen the places that are nearby. Take a picture or record a video of what you see and share on social media, directly from the App!
You can also add your own places!
In Sight Svalbard is also an altimeter, speedometer and also estimates the distance you've traveled. Choose between metric (km, meter) or imperial (miles, feet) units.
All data is built into the App, so you don't need internet. You only need internet when you use the map or share a picture or video on social media. High-resolution maps don’t require internet.
Select between the following map types: Standard, Satellite, Hybrid and High Resolution. High resolution maps are provided by the Norwegian Polar Institute (Norsk Polarinstitutt).
In Sight Svalbard relies on the compass and GPS of your device. Best results are achieved if you are outside (with Wi-Fi and cellular data switched off). Note that using a protective cover on your phone might interfere with the compass.
One way to calibrate the compass is to move the phone in an 8-number manner 3 times: Once when the phone is in landscape, once in portrait and once facing up. Also stay away from magnetic sources that might influence the compass.
