GfT - GAR for Tangible Earth


The Global Assessment Report on Disaster Risk Reduction (GAR) 2013 has augmented reality (AR) icons sprinkled throughout it, which facilitate connection with its companion application GAR for Tangible Earth (GfT). To use them, first point the camera of your GfT-installed tablet computer at these icons, then press the AR button as it appears, and a variety of dynamic information functions designed to enrich the reading experience will play in your device.
The Earth Icon: Links the user to a dynamic 3D globe, enabling geospatial data relevant to the subject in the text.
The Tablet Icon: Opens dynamic animations and additional information on the static print charts in GAR.
The Researcher Icon: Links to data about the researchers behind the article being read, their reports, web links, and videos.
