Urban Sketcher is a mixed reality interface application, based on the Studierstube framework, designed to engage users
in mixing realities processes. The highly configurable real-time mixed reality application unites several components
and has an API, open for integrating other applications and interface devices.
Urban Sketcher facilitates sketching tools which enable users to express their visions by „sketching“ in a mixed
reality scene. It provides various interfaces for placing and painting content like images and models. Furthermore it
allows the user to create simple 3D geometries in the active view into the shared three dimensional mixed reality space.
Live video augmentation of the reconstruction site or augmenting physical miniature models are typical view
configurations. Another interesting view integrates a live video stream of a scout with the mixed reality scene.
Urban Sketcher can facilitate two simultaneous real-time views which can be configured independently.
