As the worldwide smartphone market continues to expand, by the third quarter of 2012 Android had a 75% share of the global smartphone market according to the research firm IDC. One reason that smartphones are so popular is because of the wide range of smartphone applications that they provide these applications are also so useful because they can integrate intimately with our personal lives. Augmented reality is a new technology which integrates the virtual world of a smart phone with the real world of nearby locations as seen by the user. This thesis implements a number of augmented reality features by blending both visual, map-based and non-map-based elements like live projection of nearby landmark on camera preview. The main screen of the proposed application gives the address of the current location and provides two buttons. The first button is for a map view and gives the representation of the current location on the map, with options. The second button on the main screen is for showing a camera preview. When this button is clicked a camera preview is shown, and as we hold the phone vertically, it projects various nearby landmarks as icons on the phone screen. Again there is a menu bar with useful options.
