SITE VIST 20 JAN ICON REFERENCE AND MANHIRE NFT

For this site visit we aimed to test the functionality of the geo location tracking as well as live testing the natural feature tracking at each of the three writers walk sculptures ( except Bill Manhire).

At Vincent O’Sullivan’s Sculpture we tested the NFT, with a small cube appearing at the bottom of the NFT marker to show it was working. It did take a while for the tracking  to work however so we took another hi res image of the stingray to make into a better NFT marker image for tracking.

We then proceeded to Bill Manhire’s Sculpture to test the location tracking, this worked without any problems (the 3D object spun faster depending on how close we were to the sculpture).

Our next stop was Katherine Mansfield and the geo location tracking worked well with this sculpture too. The pop up that says augmented view is what the user will tap to initiate the AR views(360 and NFT).

The NFT AR also worked once initialize but this still needs work. so as before we have re taken some NFT Images to revisit and refine this tracking.  Overall this Site Visit yielded some successful testing  and has given us information to build on from this point onwards.

Site Visit – Bill Manhire

Bill Manhire’s typographic sculpture is in an hidden on the over the edge of the walkway by a small over-bridge. It overlooks the small area of the waterfront in which there is a  diving platform.

The sculpture says the following:

I live at the edge
of the universe,
like everybody else.
