Android Central Question


I'm a senior student and for my senior project I want to build a location-based augmented reality application.

This is my first time ever making an application, but I'm in group with 3 other students and they have a simple background of building an application.

We decided to use Android Studio, but we're having a problem deciding what SDK is the most suitable and what other tools are needed ?

Thank you.

I recommend joining as a member so that you can engage with other members in our Developers forums. Would you like me to move this the Developers Lounge?

If you're thinking of AR for whatever building you happen to go into, even for a single block of buildings, the phone probably doesn't have enough storage to store all that information. It's not really designed for that sort of thing. ("Location-based" really doesn't make the intention that clear.)
