LibreGeoSocial is a new FLOSS (Free, Open Source) mobile social network with a Mobile Augmented Reality interface. The nodes of the social network are geolocated and positioned at different altitudes. LibreGeoSocial nodes can be shown through a traditional list based view or through a magic lens mobile augmented reality UI that not only allows the user to see tags associated with objects of the reality perceived through the camera, but also to add tags to objects from the mobile, labeling objects at different altitudes. The system works both outdoors and indoors, with location provided by BIDI. The multimedia contents can be added through the through a friendly API providing an abstraction of layers/channels that allow to integrate geolocated information in LibreGeoSocial.
Users of LibreGeoSocial can refer to information and upload information associated to real objects around them from the mobile device. The information can be shown through different interfaces: dynamic lists, maps, or a magic lens interface. Thanks to an alarm system you don't need to use continuously any of these interfaces to be aware of nearby interesting information. An alarm is fired when you are near interesting places, objects or multimedia content that you previously specified to the alarm system.
